Recipe Ingredients for Turkey Shepherd's Pie with Scallion Mashed Potatoes

1 tsp olive oil
2/3 cup onion, chopped
4 large carrots , chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground turkey breast
1 tsp thyme, dried
1 tsp oregano, dried
1/4 tsp black pepper
28 oz Wegman's San Marzano Tomatoes
4 medium potatoes
1/4 cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
2 tbsp fat free milk
7 scallions , chopped

Recipe Directions for Turkey Shepherd's Pie with Scallion Mashed Potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 400?F.

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat (if you don't have at least a 12-inch skillet, use a large saucepan or stock pot to prevent spillovers). Add onion, carrots, and garlic and saute 3 minutes, until tender. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside.

  3. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add turkey and saute 3 to 5 minutes, until browned, breaking up the meat as it cooks. Add thyme, oregano, and pepper and stir to coat turkey with herbs. Return sauteed vegetables to skillet with the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5 minutes, until liquid reduces and sauce thickens.

  4. Meanwhile, place potatoes in a medium to large saucepan and pour over enough water to cover. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Boil 8 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain and return potatoes to pan. Mash potatoes with the sour cream and milk. Season to taste with black pepper. Fold in scallions (mashed potatoes should be slightly thin and easy to spread over turkey mixture; if they're not, add more milk).

  5. Transfer turkey mixture to a deep-dish 9-inch pie plate or shallow casserole dish. Spoon mashed potatoes over top and, using the back of a spoon, make an even layer.

  6. Place pie plate on a baking sheet (in case of spillovers) and bake 12 to 15 minutes, until top is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
