(get-away to the) COTTAGE Pie

Avon- status quo PRO

"Comfort food at it's best. What beats meat and potatoes? In a more traditional Cottage or Shepherds Pie, the addition of veggies is enclosed. This version, cuts to the chase and is great as a stand alone meal or served with a side salad."

  3. In another skillet, add the olive oil, the shallots, garlic, & rosemary. Cook over medium heat til the shallots begin to wilt.
