I make this shepherd's pie every couple of months. It is in no way an elegant meal. I was able to get a nice picture, but you should have seen my husband's plate! I love it because it's easy and it's an all in one dish. I make my bread machine rolls to go with it and I have a meal. The significant thing about this recipe is the garlic mashed potatoes. I use minced garlic in a jar, a packet of brown gravy, and sometimes (I hate to admit) instant mashed potatoes.Easy Shepherd's Pie
