This is a very easy shepherd’s (cottage) pie that’s topped with wonderful garlic and Romano potatoes. You can change the ingredients to add almost anything you like. Kids love this, and it’s even better after sitting for a day. You should have most of the ingredients on hand to lessen the trips to the grocery! You can substitute any cheese for the Romano, as well.
