Sweet potato shepherd's pie

Happy Saturday!!

Did you take advantage of BLACK Friday deals?? 
Not me, I am not much of a shopper, I did however venture into the world of SMART phones. So now I get to play are you smarter than your smart phone, nearly every day. Hmm..taking a lot of getting used to, but I think I like it. I am MUCH more mobile this way!! 

 Well, I wanted to get this recipe up as people on Facebook were clamoring for it--I didn't want to leave you out.  I was in the mood for light, healthy comfort food... is there such a thing? Yes and this one can be made dairy free and is gluten free already.


1lb ground turkey
1/2 C. Spicy Rotelle
1/2 C. Cheddar Cheese
8 oz Corn kernals
8 oz Sliced Carrots
8 oz canned salad bean mix
2 LARGE sweet potatoes

Preheat oven to 400
Cut the sweet potatoes into medium sized squares, Boil, skin on for 15 min or until soft. Mash keeping the skin on.

Brown the Turkey and line the bottom of the 9 Quart baking dish with it. Spread the Rotelle over the meat. Toss HALF the cheese with carrots, corn and beans. Spread over the top of the meat and sprinkle parsley to taste. 

Spread the Sweet potatoes over the top of the meat/veggie base and pat down. Spread remaining 1/4 C. Cheddar evenly over the top of the dish, bake uncovered at 400 for 20 min. Cool 10 min before serving. 

ENJOY! Check back this week for an update on my longest run yet and thoughts on the marathon..only 2 weeks away!!
