A cottage pie is like a shepherd’s pie, except that it’s made with beef, not lamb. Here, a hearty filling of ground beef, salty olives, savory tomatoes, and warming spices like chile powder, cumin, and cinnamon rein in the sweetness of the creamy sweet potato topping.
You can use another size dish for baking the pie, but keep in mind that the thickness of the meat and sweet potato layers will change, which may affect the baking time.

I've made this casserole several times and love it. Very adaptable as one reader noted. Leftovers are wonderful too!
Cozy comfort food! This one going into the regular rotation.
This was wonderful. I went into it with a bad attitude, what with the raisins and cinnamon, so what a great surprise to find it so tasty. My drop-by company loved it, too.
Excellent, and adaptable for many occasions. I made it the night before and increased the quantity to serve6 - 8 people...It was flavourful and appreciated for its fine flavour, texture and spices. Definitely a winner and the ingredients are adaptable.
