"If you like sweet potatoes, this is a great way to serve them," says Barbara Smith of Cannon Falls, Minnesota. "It's so easy to make this meal-in-one dish. I like to think of the marshmallows on top as dessert!"
As a child, shepherd's pie was one of my favorites. But now, having cut white potatoes out of our diet, I experimented with sweet potatoes in this dish for two. The result is different, but just as yummy! —Tanya Marcketti, Golden, Colorado
“Most people never consider combining sweet potatoes with pasta and kielbasa, but I adapted this recipe from several others and I’ve received several compliments on it," says Rickey Madden of Clinton, South Carolina. "You can add more cheese or sausage to suit your taste.”
“I’m a vegetarian and wanted to develop some dishes that are a little heartier than traditional vegetarian fare. I created this recipe, and even my 1-year-old loves it!” —Jillian Tournoux, Massillon, Ohio
Shepherd's Pie has another name, Cottage Pie, and mashed potatoes have another alternative - sweet potatoes. Whatever you call it, there's enough in the recipe to bake one casserole and freeze the other for up to 3 months. Did we mention Cumberland Pie is a cousin, but with bread crumbs on top? —Marcie Brooks-Smith, Fort Collins, Colorado
