"It's only "Shepherd's" pie if it's made with ... what do Shepherd's have ... sheep! So it's only "Shepherd's" pie if it's made with lamb. If made with beef or anything else, it's called a "Cottage" Pie. I happen to like corn, peas and/or carrots in mine so I swap out the veggies. Green beans are okay in soups or stews with me, but not in my "pies"!"

"Delicious! I have made this several times and it is a big hit. We do not find it dry at all. There are only 3 in our family so I freeze the leftovers in freezer paper and ziploc bag. It is just as good after being froze as when I first made it."

"This dish is a cross between tater tot casserole and shepherd's pie but closer to tater tot casserole. It was a little on the dry side. Maybe try adding some milk to the soup/meat mixture. Since we like both separate dishes as they are I don't think I will make this again. Four out of five kids ate this just fine, but they said it was not a big hit with them. Thanks anyways."
