Shepherd’s Pie

Serves 6

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 c. fresh green beans
1 c. sliced mushrooms (can substitute another cup of green beans)
1 16oz. can of crushed tomatoes
½ tsp. dried basil
½ tsp. dried oregano
ground black pepper to taste
3-4 c. mashed potatoes (excellent to use leftovers)
1-2 tbsp. butter

In an iron skillet, sauté ground beef and onion until beef is no longer pink and onions are translucent. Add remaining ingredients, except for the mashed potatoes and butter. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare mashed potatoes (or use leftovers). Remove skillet from heat, spoon mashed potatoes over the top, and dot with butter. Season with ground black pepper. Bakes in a 350 degree oven for about 30 mins.
