It doesn’t get much better thanÂ a veggie-filled meat sauce covered with cheesy mashed potatoes
Growing up, weÂ weren’t really a family of casserole eaters. Not until I got to college did I really start eating casseroles (namely, poppy-seed chicken casserole and cheesy chicken broccoli & rice casserole).
The second I had shepherd’s pie, I knew we would become good friends. You don’t get much better thanÂ a veggie-filled meat sauce covered with mashed potatoes.
Well, that is until you realize that it’s not a complicated dish to make. I also love making this because you can control the ingredients to nourish your body full of goodness. Think lots and lots of veggies for lots & lots of nutrients, antioxidants and fiber, plus lean ground beef for protein, vitamin B12 and iron, as well as potatoes for potassium, more fiber and to upÂ the delicious factor.
I also add cheese to the potatoes because why wouldn’t I?! Cheese + potatoes is always a good idea.
