Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Cook the sweet potatoes in boiling salted water to cover for 15 minutes or until soft when pierced with a knife.
Drain and mash. Add the butter, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. Set aside.
Steam the broccoli and parsnips for 6 to 8 minutes, until tender, adding the mushrooms for the last minute. Place the vegetables in a bowl, add the Worcestershire sauce, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Combine the ricotta cheese, egg white, feta cheese, and buttermilk in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the mustard, Italian herbs, and a pinch of salt.
Grease a heatproof casserole with a little butter and spread the vegetable mixture over the bottom. Spoon the ricotta mixture on top, followed by the yams.
Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Place the casserole in the oven and bake uncovered for about 30 minutes, until bubbling and the top is browned.
