For all of my Shepherd's Pie lovers out there, here is an easy take on Shepherd's Pie.  This recipe can be on the table ready to eat in 30 minutes flat, and you are still making a delicious home cooked meal for the family.

Let me know how the recipe works out for you, our family thinks it is pretty fantastic!

Vanessa's Shepherd's Pie

1 lb. lean ground turkey or beef
1 bag of frozen veggies
2 small cans of tomato sauce
1 box of instant mashed potatoes (cheese flavor is good!)

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degres.
2. In a small pan, brown meat and drain excess grease.  Season to taste.
3. Add frozen veggies and tomato sauce to meat, and cook on low for 3-5 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
4. In a seperate small pot, prepare instant potatoes following instructions on box.
5. In a casserole dish, pour the meat mixture in the bottom of the dish.
6. Using a spatula, spread the potato mixture on top of the meat mixture to make a "crust".
7. Bake for 10-15 minutes until potatoes look golden brown!
8. Enjoy!
