Nonna's Cottage Pie


  • 1kg brushed potatoes, peeled, cut into 5cm pieces
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk, warmed
  • ¾ cup (60g) finely grated parmesan, divided
  • 500g Cook with Curtis Italian Recipe Beef & Pork Mince
  • 500g jar tomato pasta sauce


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover them by 3cm. Bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20 mins or until tender. Drain. Return the potatoes to saucepan and mash with the milk and ½ cup (40g) parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Add the pasta sauce and ½ cup (125ml) water. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins or until sauce thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Position grill rack about 13cm below grill and preheat grill on high. Spread potato mixture over the meat filling. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan. Grill for 4 mins or until top is golden. Stand for 5 mins before serving.
