  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower; cover and steam until tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes.
  4. Blend cauliflower, garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground turkey in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir water, macaroni, peas, and soup mix into turkey; simmer until pasta is tender yet firm to the bite, 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Pour pasta mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread cauliflower mixture over pasta mixture. Sprinkle paprika over the top.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This can be made ahead and baked at a later time. Just adjust the bake time to 35 minutes if coming out of refrigerator.
  • A great side vegetable is whole kernel corn. It is awesome piled on top or added to the pie!

The recipe was a little hard to follow in my opinion. I loved using cauliflower as mashed potatoes for the first time but other than that.. not very impressed.

Awesome, made it from left over turkey from cooking the carcass, and broth. Will make it again!

we both really enjoyed this.. bf said he wishes there was some brown gravy on top.. i thought it was a little on the salty side but bf says it's spot on.. i left out the pasta and cream cheese.....

My hubby doesn't like cream cheese so we left that out.

This is a good lightened version. I left out the pasta, as did several other reviewers. My husband has no idea the "potatoes" are actually cauliflower. Try it!

I like the flavor, but it doesn't taste like shepherd's pie

Made this with 98% lean ground beef and used 2 small potatoes to the cauliflower. Instead of macaroni, I lined the bottom of the pan with some dry pot pie noodles and it made a great bottom for...
