There’s nothing better on a cold snowy day than good old shepherd’s pie. My heritage is both Italian and Irish, but this Irish dish is not one that I had much at all growing up.
I love to make my beef stew part in a heavy cast iron pot, sautéed onions and garlic alongside carrots in the medley of beef, broth, and herbs. The one veggie I was missing is peas. What’s a shepherd’s pie without a little green? Since I was out of peas, but in need of green, I folded in some spinach to my mashed potatoes and baked to perfection. Sorry – no photos of the baked pie. It looked and smelled so good that I dug right in and forgot to take the final picture! You know that means it was tasty!
