Shepherds Pie

It has been getting pretty cool around here lately and cool weather makes me think of warm comfort food. Shepherds pie is a great cold weather dish. I like that with this dish I can sneak in veggies and turkey and no one knows the difference. I have a hard time getting veggies in my 5 year old, and my husband! My 10 month old even devoured this!

I debated posting a picture because it turned out looking a big mess! I was in a hurry because I started dinner late so I didnt let the sauce thicken enough and it didnt really hold a shape. It was still delicious!

Shepherds Pie

1.5lb ground turkey
1/2 medium zuchinni
1/2 small onion
1c baby carrots
3 cloves garlic
1.5T Worcestershire sauce

1 can beef broth
