I am so happy to be changing up some of my recipes to include ground turkey, which my tummy likes a whole lot better than ground beef. This is one outstanding recipe for Shepherd's pie that my entire family loved. I especially enjoy my addition of Tuscan veggies, spices and french fried onions. Hope you'll try it out too. This is another recipe originally found in my Ninja Cookbook but with my changes and additions.

    I made this for my parents the other night for their return from Florida. Some of us like corn and some of us don't, so I did a half corn. 4/8/13

    Spread evenly the mashed potatoes over the top of mixture.

    Top with swiss or cheddar. Set OVEN to 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Cover & cook until mixture is hot. Now, just pick up the pot right out of the Ninja and take to the table. Put on a hot pad and this will remain PIPING HOT.

    (I put some french fried onions in a bowl on the table. It adds a little crunch which I like.)

    Photo of Tuscan veggies that I use because my husband doesn't care for green beans and does not eat corn. I also didn't have enough mashed potatoes, so I whipped up a box of fake one's and it worked fine.
