Slimming World Cottage Pie with Sweet Potato Mash

Seriously yum yum yum and great because it doesn't taste like "diet food" so I can quite happily dish it up for everyone so I don't need to eat seperately!

450g Extra Lean Mince
2 large potatoes
1 sweet potato
1 large carrot grated (my kids prefer it grated, chop if you prefer!)
2 Sticks of celery sliced
1 medium onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
Handful of garden peas
Handful of sweetcorn
300ml stock made with beef oxo cubes
Glug of passat or half a tin of chopped tomatoes
Splosh of balsamic vinegar
Salt and Pepper to season
Spray Oil
Splash of milk (I used skimmed to keep it really low)
2 cheese triangles (in place of butter to mash potatoes)
42g of reduced fat cheddar 

Preheat the oven to 180c
Chop potatoes (sweet potato in bigger chunks as it cooks more quickly) put in pan with boiling water and simmer

Spray a pan with some spray oil and lightly fry the onion, celery and garlic

Add the carrots, fry further

Add mince and cook until brown
Add thyme, passata/tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and stir
Add stock
Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer, add the frozen peas, sweetcorn, season with salt and pepper as required
Pour mince mixture into a casserole dish

Mash the Potatoes with the milk and cheese triangles
Place on top of mince mixture and smooth over with a fork

Bake in oven for approx 45mins -1hr
Top with the cheese approx 15-20 mins before end of cooking time.
