Recipe - Big Red sheperds pie

I saw this recipe advertised on tv - for Heinz Tomato Soup.  I paused the tv program and wrote it down.  I haven't tried it yet but it sounded quick and easy so I'll give it a go one day.  The instructions are rather abbreviated because I just scrawled it on a piece of paper.

Here it is :

Onion, Carrot, Celery : dice and cook them until soft
Add minced beef or lamb, stir until cooked
Sprinkle a good tablespoon of flour over
Add a can of rich tomato soup (Heinz of course)
Add a good cup beef stock
Simmer 15-20 minutes

Cook some potatoes, mash with cream and salt

Spread mince into base of dish, top with potato, sprinkle with grated cheese.
Bake 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees

when I first saw the title of the blog I thought you were making a shepherds pie with kangaroo meat!

I guess there's no reason you couldn't! Roo meat is available in most supermarkets but I don't recall ever seeing mince..... usually steaks. That was our old labrador's diet - roo mince (it's common minced as pet food) with pasta or rice and vegies. She loved it.
