Cottage pie is like shepherd’s pie, but with ground beef instead of lamb. This easy cottage pie is a simple, rich, warm, and comforting dinner! This dinner is the definition of true comfort food! It’s my mom’s birthday dinner request every year, and a perfect dish to take to a family that needs a meal. It tastes super rich but it’s actually pretty healthy. Ground beef, onions, carrots, peas, flour, beef broth, red wine, tomato paste, and mashed potatoes are all you need for this crowd-pleasing dinner! It’s a great make-ahead dinner as well.
One-pan pasta with broccoli and mushrooms is a sanity saver on crazy nights when you can’t stand the thought of dirtying more than one pan! It’s comfort food at its best and I am pretty sure that with all those vegetables you can call it healthy too. Broccoli, mushrooms, onions, pasta, chicken broth (or vegetable broth), butter, a little cream, sun-dried tomatoes, and a sprinkle of cheese. Why wouldn’t you make this easy one-pan dinner?
