    Great, easy recipe! I added lightly sauteed shredded cabbage into the potatoes as well as shredded cheese. Then, I sprinkled shredded cheese over the top when it was just about done. And, I also used real potatoes.

    I've always wanted to make shepherd's pie but for some reason the topping just didn't make sense to me. So when I was looking for something different to make I came across this recipe. I had everything that was need to make it. This was delicious. My family [all boys] loved it as well. When I really took a look at it, its meat and potatoes so of course my family was going to love it. I will be making this again.
