"If you use a cast iron pan, you don’t even have to transfer the filling to a baking dish before covering it by mashed potatoes. The whole thing can be done in just one pot. Now, that sounds a lot more attractive, doesn’t it? Cooked in a combination of tomato paste, red wine, Worcestershire sauce and fresh thyme, the sauce of the filling is so tasty and rich that it goes well with ground beef, turkey or lamb. Onions, carrots, and sweet peas help keep the dish nutritious and balance well with the meat as well as the creamy mashed potatoes. It’s meaty, healthy, and simply delicious! Hope you enjoy!"
