Sheppards Pie (Cottage pie) - 5 points per serving

Another recipe I really love is Shepard's Pie (Cottage pie). Here's a healthy(er) alternative.

Serves 6 - 5 points per serving.

2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped - 6 points
Head of cauliflower, chopped - 0 points
1/4 1% milk - 1 point
2 tbsp fat free sour cream - 0 points
1 lb 95% lean ground beef  - 20 points

1 tsp garlic - 0 points
1/4 cup chopped onion - 0 points
3 cups frozen vegi mix (I use carrot and pea mix, but you could use 0 point vegis to save points) 2 points
1 tsp soy sauce -0 points
2 tsp red wine  - 0 points
2 tsp ketchup - 0 points
2 tsp flour - 0 points
1 cup fat free beef broth - 0 points
Salt and pepper - 0 points

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Boil the potatoes and cauliflower in a large pot until fork tender, usually about 9 minutes. Drain well. Put milk, sour cream, and salt and pepper (to taste) in blender with cauliflower and potatoes. Blend to mashed potato consistancy.
While potatoes are boiling, saute onion and garlic until they begin to brown then add the ground beef. When brown, drain, then add soy sauce, red wine and ketchup, along with frozen vegis. (if  you use fresh vegis, be sure to saute them a bit, then cook the beef.)
When everything is soft and smells cooked, put it into a pie tin and cover with potato mixture.
Cook for 16-20 minutes until bubbling.You might broil a minute or two at the end to brown the top, if you'd like. Or add a bit of cheese if you want to be extravagant. Just be sure to add the points.
