Difficulty: Easy
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Serves: 8

1 lb. Button mushrooms, sliced
1 12 oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained and diced
2 Tablespoons butter
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon coriander
5 cups diced cooked turkey
1 ½ cups cold or cool gravy
4 cups cool mashed potatoes (if they are too hard to spread, add a small amount of milk stirring into the potatoes gently)
12 green onions, thinly sliced
 ¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
½ cup bread crumbs

1.    In a hot sauté pan, sauté mushrooms in butter until the mushrooms are tender.  Mix in roasted red peppers, cinnamon, cayenne, cumin, paprika and coriander and heat for about 1 minute.  Season with salt and pepper.
2.    In a bowl, combine mushrooms, peppers, turkey, and gravy.  Pour into a 9 x 13 inch pan.

4.    Spread mashed potatoes on the top of the turkey mixture.  This can be done using a spatula or even your hands.  (If the potatoes are very stiff, gently mix in a small amount of milk.)
5.    Cover the potatoes with cheese and bread crumbs.  
6.    Bake in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes and until the top is nicely browned and the interior has reached 165 degrees F.
