I would like to introduce you a new way to enjoy the Traditional Shepherd’s Pie, with mild Italian sausage that all the family including kids, will crave over and over again!
Shepherd’s Pie Tools & Ingredients:
Before starting, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients and tools:
- Yellow onion 1
- Carrots 1
- Yellow potatoes 3
- Mild Italian Sausage 300g
- Green Peas 1cup
- Cooking Oil, Salt, Pepper
- Chicken broth cube (1/2)

Important Note: The above ingredients are listed for 2 portions of the pie. You would also need the following tools:
- Medium Bowl
- Ceramic ovenproof dish

Step 1: Prepare Ingredients
Make sure you have all the ingredients available. Start with chopping onion. Peel and dice carrot & potatoes. Remove leaves from thyme stems.
Step 2: Cook the potatoes
In a medium pot full of water, add potatoes and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Cook for about 20 min or until done. Remove from heat and drain.
Step 3: Meanwhile, start cooking the meat
Heat 1tbsp of Olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Saute onions & carrots for a few minutes. Add the sausage meat and cook for 5 min. Season with s&p.
Step 4: Prepare the sauce
Add 2 tbsp of flour and cook for a minute, then add the tomato paste and 1 1/2 cups of water. Add 1/2 broth cube. Bring to boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10-15 min or until the sauce has thickened.
Step 5: Add peas and set aside
Preheat oven to “Broil”
Add the green peas to the sauce, stir and remove from heat. Transfer the mix to an ovenproof dish. I prefer the ceramic one.
Step 6: Mash the potatoes, bake and serve!
Mash the potatoes with 2 tbsp of butter. Mix well and season to taste with s&p. Spread mashed potatoes on the top of the sausage sauce and place into the oven to broil for 4 min or until browned. Serve immediately.
