SHEPHERDS PIE - Quick and Easy

Ruthann Cook


This is my twist on a recipe I found from Taste of Home. I have added green beans (you can use whatever vegetable you would like) and I cook in a cast iron skillet for better flavor.
My husband devours this - he is a real meat and potato man! It is always a good meal for cold weather too!
