  • 1

    In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up with a fork or wooden spoon. Drain off all but 1-2 tablespoons of fat. Add the onion, carrot, and garlic, and sauté until the vegetables begin to soften. Sprinkle with the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.

    Add the broth, stirring constantly, and cook until the mixture begins to thicken. Add the thyme, and tomato paste, and simmer for several minutes until the flavors are blended. Season to taste with salt, and pepper.

    Stir in the peas. Tip the mixture into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish or 10-inch pie plate. Evenly spread the mashed potatoes on top of the meat mixture with a spatula. Top with the grated parmesan.
