#MeatlessMonday - #Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie #recipe

This is a very hearty dish I made for Father's Day. You can add whatever vegetables happen to be in your pantry, this recipe is very versatile. I cheated with the Bisto gravy mix and frozen piecrust because it was hot (that's my story and I'm sticking to it ) but you're welcome to make those from scratch. Enjoy!

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

1 baked deep-dish pie shell  (you may omit the pie shell and use a baking dish, if you wish)
Bisto gravy mix (1-1/2 cups gravy)
