This is great for low carb dieters, at who it's aimed, but since I make my Shepherd's Pie with just mashing the potatoes and putting on the top (no butter, cream or anything like that) for me, mine is actually a lower calorie, lower-fat version. This will be good for the rest of the family though - 9/5/07
Very tasty indeed. Even my highly-skeptical bf couldn't tell it was fake mashed potato! I agree, 1/8 of the recipe is a pretty serving so next time, I'll cut out some of the cream and cheese to reduce the calories, and cut a bigger slice (1/6th) per person. Really yummy dish! - 3/29/09
