Expert Tips

Look for sloppy Joe sauce in the grocery store canned tomato and pizza sauce aisle. Taste the sauce before you use it in this casserole; sweeten it with about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, if your desire.

Use lean ground turkey in place of ground beef.

Serve this shepherd's pie with sliced fresh fruit or a tossed salad.
