Squash and Sausage Shepherds Pie
Ingredients
 
Nonstick cooking spray
2 1/2
pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
5
tablespoons butter, softened
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
pound sweet Italian sausage or lean ground beef (85%)
1
tablespoon olive oil
1
1
8 ounce package sliced fresh mushrooms
3
cloves garlic, minced
1
cup reduced-sodium beef broth
1/2
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes (about 1 1/2 cups)
1
tablespoon snipped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1
cup frozen peas and carrots
 
Shaved Parmesan cheese (optional)
 
Sliced green onion (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly coat six 10 to 12-ounce individual casseroles with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a 6-quart Dutch oven cook squash in lightly salted boiling water, covered, for 15 to 17 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain; return to Dutch oven. Mash with butter, Parmesan, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; set aside.
  3. In a large skillet cook sausage over medium-high heat, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon until no longer pink. Transfer meat to a colander; drain well. Wipe out skillet with a paper towel.
  4. In the skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes more. Stir in broth, crushed tomatoes, rosemary, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to medium and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in meat, peas and carrots, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook 2 minutes. Divide mixture among prepared dishes. Spread top with butternut squash. Place on a large baking sheet.
  5. Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until top is lightly browned. If desired, top with shaved Parmesan and sliced green onion. Makes 6 servings.
