    Cooked mash pie mild italian sausage (I added a little allspice) with onion and cabbage topped with mashed potatoes.  Removed extra juice after cooking pork mixture.  I recently started cooking dinner for a couple.  This week she was gone and cooked only for him and two young children.  I needed to cook something he could re-heat at dinner time.  I think I used too much pepper on mashed potatoes and sausage was a little spicy.  Is this a good choice.  What could I have done different?  A lot of the spice got removed in extra juice I think.  I didn't have time to make crust or pie pizza dough from pizzeria.  He is British.

    Watch out for spicy food with children, they are often very sensitive. I personally would cook "juice" down for added flavor, if it's just fat then thats different. Only recipe i've seen for this called for ground beef deglazed with red wine.
