Food: Sweet Potato & Turkey Pie

This weekend I felt so Autumnal! I could feel the dip in the temperature, the darker nights drawing in, oh and not forgetting the fact I was cooking all the comfort food.
This recipe is a take on Shepherds Pie,  but I 100% prefer this version.
It is so tasty, healthy and filling.
