Springtime Shepherd's Pie

Tanya Jones


Shepherd's pie has always been a comfort food in my family. When I started Weight Watchers, I thought that I wouldn't be able to have Shepherd's pie. This healthier, low point shepherd's pie is not only yummy but I don't even miss the potatoes. At two cups a serving, this meal is filling and is only 5 points plus.
