I hadn't made a Shepherd's Pie in ages. I made this version of it (with ingredients I had on hand) and really liked the result. I hadn't made a Shepherd's Pie in ages. I made this version of it (with ingredients I had on hand) and really liked the result.
Number of Servings: 6


    1 acorn squash
    2 large yams cut in pieces
    1 potato cut in pieces
    1/4-1/2 cup nonfat milk
    1 pat butter
    1-2 tbsp parmesan cheese
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    dried thyme, basil, salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
    1 package ground turkey 99% fat free
    1 large onion
    1/2 small package frozen peas
    1-2 cups chopped carrots/cabbage (about half and half)
    1 chopped tomato
    2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup red wine
    1 tbsp chopped garlic

    Boil potatoes in salted water until tender (I did not peel them). If time permits, you can roast the acorn squash. I cut it in half and microwaved for 12 minutes in a covered dish with a little water on the bottom. Scoop squash out of the shell and mash with the potatoes (left a little bit of the boiling water in with them), butter, milk, cheese, pepper, nutmeg, salt to taste. You can pull out peels if you like or leave them in.

    While [potatoes are cooking, saute the onions and garlic in a little bit of olive oil (or use cooking spray). Add meat, thyme, basil and brown. Add carrots and cabbage before meat is finished browning, red wine and worcestershire sauce. Saute several minutes. Add tomatoes and peas and saute for several more minutes until carrots are slightly tender. You can cook it a little more here to get rid of some moisture, but make sure there is some liquid in the meat.

    Put meat mixture in a casserole dish (used an 8x10 but this was a bit small). Top with the mashed potato mixture. Brown at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes.


makes 6 1-cup servings (conservative estimate).
