    This is soooo good! My family requests it a lot, especially when it gets colder outside. Love that it is a guiltless comfort meal.

  2. Why are not more people raving about this? This was sooo good and we are avid Shepard’s pie lovers in this house. I prepped ahead of time (bc you know… kids…) and added 3 tablespoons of grated Parm on top. Came out fantastic. I put it in recipe builder and it came to 6 points on green (divided into 8 servings) so naturally I had two
    Pieces 😄

    I love this recipe as did my family but why does the picture not reflect the same ingredients in it?

  4. Haven’t made this yet, but it looks really good. I’m curious though, the picture shows peas in the recipe and there’s no mention of peas in the ingredients?

    • Hi Carrie,
      You can add peas. They are optional as stated above the photo. I usually add them, but it’s up to you.
