A healthy and Weight Watchers Friendly Ground Turkey Shepherd's Pie made with ground turkey, parsnips, mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes. You can use leftover mashed potatoes or instant mashed potatoes!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/205 degrees C and spray oven safe casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray
Place potatoes in a large pot with enough water so the water comes 2 inches above potatoes. Boil until soft, where a fork can easily go through them (or use leftover or instant).
Drain potatoes and mash with ¼ cup chicken broth, sour cream, minced garlic, parmesan cheese and milk.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown turkey; season with salt and pepper, if desired. When cooked, set aside.
Saute the diced onion in olive oil for 2 minutes then add the celery and grated parsnip, Cook about 10-12 minutes, or until celery is soft.
Add garlic, 1 cup chicken broth, tomato paste, flour, Worcestershire sauce and rosemary to cooked turkey mixture and mix well. Simmer on low about 5-10 minutes. Add in defrosted frozen mixed vegetables.
In prepared casserole dish, spread the meat mixture on the bottom of the dish. Top with mashed potatoes.
Use a fork to scrape the top of the potatoes to make ridges if desired.
Bake 20 minutes or until potatoes turn golden.
Remove from oven and let it cool 10 minutes before serving. Freeze after cooling completely (I use a microwave safe casserole dish so it can go straight from freezer to microwave)
