Leftover Thanksgiving mashed potatoes make it easy to whip up shepherd's pie on a weeknight. This vegetarian version is as hearty as the beefy original, thanks to meaty portabella mushrooms, but you could throw in leftover turkey if you want.

Wine pairing: Joseph Jewell 2014 Pinot Noir (Humboldt County; $32).
