ONE-PAN PORTABELLA MUSHROOM SHEPHERD'S PIE

SERVES 4 TO 6 / 40 MINUTES

Leftover Thanksgiving mashed potatoes make it easy to whip up shepherd's pie on a weeknight. This vegetarian version is as hearty as the beefy original, thanks to meaty portabella mushrooms, but you could throw in leftover turkey if you want.

3 cups mashed potatoes

1/4 cup whipping cream

2 oz. parmesan cheese, finely shredded (about 3/4 cup)

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

8 large portabella mushroom caps (about 1Vi lbs. total), gills removed, halved and cut into Уз-in.-thick slices

1 large yellow onion (about 12 oz.), chopped

3 large carrots (about 9 oz. total), peeled and chopped

1 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

3/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

2 garlic cloves, chopped

Vi cup dry white wine

3 tbsp. flour

1 Vi cups mushroom broth or reduced-sodium vegetable broth

Finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

1. Preheat broiler to high with a rack in middle of oven.

2. Microwave potatoes, covered, until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in cream and parmesan. Cover; set aside.

3. Heat oil in a 10-in. cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until softened and liquid has mostly evaporated, about 10 minutes. Add onion, carrots, rosemary, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring often, until onions and carrots are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add wine and cook until completely evaporated, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle vegetables with flour; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Still stirring, gradually add broth. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, 5 to 6 minutes.

4. Remove skillet from heat. Spread mashed potatoes over vegetables to completely cover them. Broil until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
