How to Make Healthy & Easy Shepherd's Pie

- 4Use additional broth to make mashed potatoes, season with paprika and pepper, or other spices and herbs. Or use leftovers. Spread atop soup mixture. Sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.
- 5Bake at 400’ until cheese is melted and potatoes are just a bit browned. Can also be microwaved until cheese melts.
- 6*Can be easily made to serve 6-8 by doubling recipe and using 9x13 pan. Or, make a triple recipe and use two pans. Doubling or tripling recipe and using more than one pan also allows you to serve one and freeze one for use later! Re-heats well in microwave.
