Shepherd's Pie takes a testy twist with this version. Between the fluffy mashed potato topping and the savory ground beef base is a bed of tender, green asparagus. Even my kids ask for big helpings.

Meet the Cook: As the second oldest of eight children in a busy farm family, I had plenty of opportunity to practice cooking while I was growing up. Now that our three children are grown, I am cooking just for my husband and me - though few weeks pass without visitors. For "country eaters", this hearty pie is perfect!

In this healthier version of a traditional recipe, I punch up the flavor of turkey with caramelized onions and brandy, cut saturated fat with heart-healthy canola oil, and save a few calories for a sprinkling of gooey cheese. Serve with a side of lemony green beans and everyone’s happy! —Jennifer Beckman, Falls Church, Virginia
