    This is an interesting variation to the traditional European Cottage Pie (often referred to as Shepherd's Pie here in the States). As this recipe suggests, there are a multitude of possible variations, but the foundation of meat, vegetable, and starch rings strong and true. Of course, (almost) anything with cheese makes it taste better too, which with the world of cheeses available that's just one more way to alter the flavor.

    I make something similar to this, but it's cooked ground beef on the bottom of the casserole, then green bean layer, tomato soup layer, cheese slices on top of that, then top it with mashed potatoes, called an economy dish. Very good.
