*Shepherd's Pie* (Diabetic Recipe)

Hello, today's diabetic recipe is Shepherd's Pie. This one has mushrooms in it.When I make this casserole I don't put mushrooms in it and I think this casserole tastes better using home made mashed potatoes. It's actually quicker to make the instant though. This recipe is budget friendly. In my household we use a lot of off brand foods because it costs less in the long run. There are brands I prefer to use, because the quality is better. The mushrooms in this recipe are included in the nutrition facts. Well, here's the recipe, enjoy!
