Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium pot, boil sweet potato cubes until soft; approx. 10-15 minutes (depending on the size of your cubes).
While sweet potatoes are boiling, heat olive oil on medium-high in a large pan and saute onions until translucent; 3-5 minutes. Add ground turkey; brown and season with garlic salt, salt & oregano. Add corn, green beans and tomato sauce. Heat throughout.
Once potatoes have softened, drain all water and mash with a potato masher, hand held immersion blender, or hand mixer.
Spoon meat mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish and cover with prepared mashed potatoes. Sprinkle the pie with shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted.
[My 2 Cents]
I didn't grow up with a garden, so each time I get to use something from our garden we've got going this year I get so excited. I'm amazed at how wonderful fresh veggies and herbs taste. I used the green beans from our garden and measured about a cup and a half. I also used whole tomatoes that we canned last summer. I just threw them in the blender and blended until smooth and measured out about two cups (you could use less if you like).
