Simple Shepherd's Pie
"A simple homemade Shepherds Pie recipe with minimal ingredients that doesn't sacrifice taste! Quick to make, this Americanized Shepherd's Pie is exactly the dish you're looking for when you want a fast but tasty dinner for the family. Roughly 40-50 minutes to make, this meal will not only feed your family for the evening, but provide leftovers for tomorrow (one of my favorite aspects). Having the 4 main ingredients of beef, potatoes, corn, and peas is all you need, the rest is just for flavor."
