I was told to replace every meat loaf recipe that I have ever made with this Shepard's pie. They really liked it. (Hate meat loaf). The only thing things I changed was to add a extra cup of veggies and a shot of soy sauce instead of the worchester sauce,which I don't care for. Great week night meal with a tossed salad.

Made this Casserole but like johnsen commented, I as well added pasta water. I also omitted the pimientos as I didn't have them. I also added some ground pepper and some garlic powder, which next time I would add fresh garlic. Very good dish and it's a keeper.Thanks for the recipe and it was too bad you didn't add a picture of it when done.

I used a sweet pepper and I omitted the pimientos! Served with bread, butter and jelly! Yummmm! My family all agreed they liked this recipe. Would definitely make it again!

I used the steps listed but after combining all in a pyrex dish, I microwaved the casserole (my conventional oven is on the blink, but, I must confess, I probably would have anyway because I like the quicker way). It was very flavorful but a little dry & so I added more butter to my plate & it was a winner1
