  • 3 cups frozen mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, carrots & peas) 
  • 1/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups part-skim shredded Mozzarella cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Fill a large stockpot with water. Add potatoes, cover & boil 12-15 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain & set aside to cool. 
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add oil & onion. Sauté on medium-high 2-3 minutes, or until onions are soft. Add turkey, garlic powder & oregano. Cook 5-7 minutes, crumbling meat, stirring occasionally until meat is cooked through. Stir in mixed vegetables. Mix well. 
  3. Add milk to stockpot & whip potatoes until fluffy. 
  4. Lightly coat a large casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread turkey & vegetable mixture on bottom. Carefully scoop & spread potato mixture on top of turkey. Top with cheese & bake 10-15 minutes.
