Not Your Mama's Sheperd's Pie


You get all the same creamy, gooey goodness in this comfort food, but instead of using cream of mushroom it's made with a delicious homemade gravy and there are a lot more veggies to add color and nutrition. Don't forget a good crusty bread to mop up the yummy sauce.
