Mighty Shepherds Pie



We brought a large crown pumpkin for $3 the other week and I have been wanting to try and utilize it in more recipes just than soup. Also been thinking of fun easy ways to get the family to eat more vegetables hence were the name mighty shepherds pie came from as its a pretty big and filling dish.  Basically here we have a hearty beef mince and pumpkin shepherds pie its also contains grated carrots, tomato, and spinach  in the mince base.  I then topped it wish mash and plenty of cheese, we had ours just as it or you could serve this with some boiled broccoli or green salad. Great  recipe for lunch’s for the week and even freezing for the moments when you have no time or energy to cook.
