    Some time ago I had Shepherd's Pie that was made with shredded rather than minced lamb. It was to die for and I really wanted the recipe. I love doing a roast shoulder of lamb and I thought let's give it a go with the leftover meat. The result was stunning, so I've decided to share the recipe. This is my first recipe submission!
