To be honest, Shepard's Pie has never been my favorite meal but it seems that every other day I hear about how much people love it. For that reason, I make it every once and awhile, but usually go for this shortcut version that eliminates layering everything together and baking it. It's just not a step I always have time for on a busy weeknight and to me it tastes pretty much the same if you just layer everything together in a bowl. To lighten everything up, I like to pair it with a creamy cauliflower mash. This freezes great so it's also great to make and freeze in individual portions for future meals.
