I love taking recipes, with tons of ingredients, that take awhile to make and paring it down to a few easy steps with 5 ingredient’s. Shepherd’s pie is now, so easy to make, that you can enjoy it any time in under 8 minutes, all in one pan! This is even better the next day and will slice up so beautiful for you. The Zhoug Sauce from Trader Joe’s gives this the perfect kick. Not too spicy, just right. I hope you enjoy this, and all of our quick and easy meals.

Step 1: Place your ground beef in a fry pan over m/h heat and start breaking up using your handy dandy chopping tool. ( See YouTube video.)
Step 2: Once meat is all broken up add your diced onions and brown with the meat.
Step 3: While your meat is browning ( to save time you want to do this now) put all of the frozen mashed potato disks in a microwave safe dish with 1T of water and microwave for 7 minutes covered with a microwave safe lid.
Step 4: When meat and onions are done add 2T Zhoug Sauce, and 4T of the red pepper/eggplant spread. Mix thoroughly with the meat and onions.
Step 5: Your potatoes will be done around the same time as the meat. Remove from microwave and stir so there are no lumps. Spread all of the potatoes over the entire meat mixture. Cover with a lid and heat for about one minute. Slice into 9 pie size slices. ( can also be refrigerated and re-heated for later use.)
Step 6: Enjoy!
