Shepherd's Pie with a Twist

Lamb Shepherd's Pie with Sweet Potato Topping
Okay, I admit, it's not the prettiest picture I've ever taken (although the dish did look that orange), but it sure tasted good.

My usual Shepherd's Pie is more like a meat loaf with potato topping. My daughter Sharron (after 20 years of eating it) finally told me she likes the "looser" kind. So when I saw a lamb version that looked very juicy in the latest issue of Olive Magazine - a great read, I decided to try it out. Of course, she's in Chile so she won't be eating any...maybe if she reads this, it will entice her to come home...a mom can wish, can't she?

Anyway, being on the South Beach Diet, I try to stay away from potatoes so I thought I'd do a version of the pie with sweet potatoes instead. It was delicious, so I thought I'd share. I rounded out the dinner with a side of sauteed broccoli and dessert was some low fat mocha mousse.

Sweet potatoes are wonderful. They pack so much more nutrition too!
