This Healthier Shortcut Shepard's Pie is full of flavor and ready in about 15 minutes. Paired with your favorite mashed veggies and you have a hearty meal everyone will love.
This time of year I am craving hearty, filling meals that stick to your ribs. The only problem, I actually want them to do the opposite of stick to my ribs. Especially with the holidays and all their indulgences, I really try to make sure our meals at home are healthy this time of year. So lightened up versions of classic dishes like Shepard's Pie are the perfect solution to satisfy my cravings and my desire to eat healthy.
Additionally since the holidays can be hectic, I also like to make this shortcut version to speed things up. Instead of making everything and baking it, you make the filling and then serve it with the your favorite veggie mash - potatoes, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, carrots, or butternut squash are all great options. It's also delish over a baked potato. Usually when I am planning on serving this, I make the filling and mash ahead of time since it only gets better after a couple of days in the fridge.

Note: For a more traditional Shepard’s Pie, pour this mixture into a baking dish and top with cauliflower mashed potatoes. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until top begins to brown.
