Tina’s Simple Shepherd’s Pie

1 c. carrots, peeled and chopped

1 c. pearl onions (Here is a You Tube video showing and easy way to peel these babies. You’ll thank me later.)

1 c. frozen peas

1-1/2 t. fresh rosemary, chopped

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add carrots and onions; cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add turkey and cook until browned, about 6 minutes; break up turkey with a wooden spoon. Add your flour and stir to coat. Stir in broth, peas and rosemary; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with more salt and pepper, if desired. Spoon mixture into an ungreased 9” deep-dish pie plate.
