    Sara 76's Note:

    I love making this. It's such a nice winter meal, and it's so easy and quick, and best of economical!! Growing up, Mum made shepherds pie almost weekly. Over the years I have altered it, and this is the way my family enjoys it now. We don't serve this with anything, except maybe a nice bread roll.

      My whole family loved this. My son who does not like meat had 3rds. It was great, and I will for sure be making this again! Thanks for the recipe.

      This was a very nice shepherds pie. It is different from the one I usually make. We enjoyed this very much. It was quick and easy to make. A real comfort food. I love the addition of the cheese. It had a very nice flavor and was rich and creamy. My dh absolutely loved it...he had the rest for lunch today and wouldn't share.... thanks for posting.

      My husband loved this more than any Shepherds Pie I have ever made. Next time I will add a layer of corn, since that's the way my mother made it. I will be making this one again and again. Thank you
