Sweet Potato Shepards Pie

Sweet Potato Shepards Pie may not be an Italian dish, but as a child I remember my mum cooking this for us every month. I admit to cooking this every week for my family, especially for my mince crazy husband and kids that just spoon it by the mouth full not knowing what I have secretly put inside it. This can be made the night before then heated in the oven before serving.
