Shepherd's Pie

This is one of the best recipes I have found for Shepherd's Pie so far! We love it! It's a great cold night meat and potato meal!

Here is what you will need:

8 potatoes
1 pound carrots ,chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion,chopped
1 jar(12oz) fat free brown gravy
1tsp salt
1/2tsp rubbed sage
1/2tsp dried thyme
1/4tsp crushed rosemary
1/4tsp pepper
1/3 skim milk(or whatever you got)
2Tbsp butter
Parmesan Cheese, Shredded

Peel, cube,and boil potatoes until tender. Drain and add milk,butter, and 1/2tsp salt. Mash with potato masher.

Add 1 inch of water to a small saucepan and add carrots. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat cover and simmer until tender, about 7-9 minutes. Drain.

In a large nonstick skillet add ground beef and onion and cook until meat is no longer pink;drain.
Stir in the carrots, gravy,1/2tsp salt,sage,thyme,rosemary,and pepper. 

Transfer to a baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover with the mashed potatoes all the way to the edges. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake uncovered for 35 minutes at 375 degrees.

Makes 4 servings.

Sissy loves this so much she took the leftovers in her lunch the next day! :-)  This is definitely a keeper at my house!
