No-Fuss Shepherd’s Pie

Leave a comment

Hi

I love cooking, however cooking from scratch can be expensive and time consuming. Yet when being back at university eating right can be difficult. However this no-fuss shepherd’s pie is easy and perfect to have from frozen during the week and especially when those dark cold nights come rolling in.
