Easy Shepherd’s Pie


Mashed potatoes

Gravy (fat free or not)

Cooked or canned lentils

Frozen peas and carrots

Although my family loves the full version of Shepherd’s Pie made in a pie crust and baked, it’s extra work and the crust adds extra fat, so the weeknight version looks more like this.


The mashed potatoes are the most time consuming, so start them first.  Then start the lentils, followed by the gravy.  Because I was making individual servings this week, I made all of the ingredients separately instead of combining them as I normally would have.  This was a little more work but worth it for the prank.
