In this Italian take on traditional shepherds pie, sausage takes the place of ground beef (or lamb), and spinach replaces the green veggies. Zesty tomatoes, mixed Italian cheese and garlicky mashed potatoes make this dish long on flavor, even if the ingredient list is short. . —Leah Lyon, Ada, Oklahoma
