Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes


"This is a very easy shepherd's (cottage) pie that's topped with wonderful garlic and Romano potatoes. You can change the ingredients to add almost anything you like. Kids love this, and it's even better after sitting for a day. You should have most of the ingredients on hand so no trips to the grocery! You can substitute any cheese for the Romano, as well."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. Place the beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat. Season with rosemary and basil. Cook until beef is evenly brown; drain grease. Mix in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and mixed vegetables. Cook and stir until vegetables are heated through. Transfer to the baking dish.
  3. Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat and drain. Mix butter, Romano cheese, garlic, salt, oregano, and milk into the pot. Mash together with a potato masher. Top beef and vegetables with the mashed potatoes.
  4. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn oven to broil, and continue cooking 3 minutes, until potatoes are golden brown.

This was always my husband's favorite comfort food. I didn't quite get it (bland, blah) but after trying MANY recipes, I'm a believer after this one. I had to change a few things as to what I ...

This was very easy to prepare and very good to eat. I would recommend using a deep dish for baking as it over flowed in the oven. I used ground turkey as suggested.

I modified this recipe to my family. I used ground turkey, substituted Mrs. Dash for salt and left out the rosemary. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Sending some to my daughter in college. ...

I will make this often. The potatoes were delicious! I used frozen corn (thawed) and 1 can of Italian green beans (drained) instead of the mixed veggies and added extra garlic. Great comforti...

I usually use a shepherd's pie recipe with cream of mushroom soup, but wanted to try something different. I don't think I'll ever go back, this is quite good. I did make a number of changes, as...

A nice change from the shepherd's pie I grew up on. I loved the cheesy garlicy potatoes..
