    delicious! the only substitution i made was to use left over garlic mashed potatoes and used 1/2 the carrots and added peas. - 3/9/10

  • This is almost the same as mine except I add an egg to the potatoes, use pasta sauce not ketchup and broth and frozen veggies. I also use extra-lean ground for lower fat.
    I vary it using Italian herbs and garlic or thyme, rosemary and garlic for a more English flavour. - 10/3/13
