Stovetop Shepherd’s Pie
Irish eyes — and taste buds — are certainly smiling over this recipe. Our shepherd’s pie presents a healthier twist on the classic version. Incorporating ground turkey, fat-free milk, and reduced-fat cheese makes for a hearty and no-less-delicious take on this staple dish.

1 cup chopped green bell pepper
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 2/3 cups water, divided

1 1/4 cups fat-free (skim) milk
1 1/3 cups instant mashed potatoes
2 ounces shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese

Directions
1 – Heat medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Coat skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add turkey. Cook, stirring to break up meat, until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels if necessary; set aside.

2 – Add onion and bell pepper to skillet. Cook 4 minutes or until onion is translucent, stirring frequently. Add cooked turkey, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup water, cumin, and ground red pepper. Cook 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Cover; set aside.

3 – Bring remaining 1 1/3 cups water and salt, if desired, to a boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in milk and potatoes. (Do not whisk.) Spoon mashed potatoes evenly over turkey mixture.
