Recipe: IRISH FOOD WEEK: SKILLET SHEPHERD'S PIE

It's St. Patrick's week. Celebrate by cooking like the Irish would. This modern twist on a classic Irish dish comes from the Web site for Woman's Day magazine.

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 cups frozen mixed vegetables

1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, drained

1 jar (12 oz.) Bistro Au Jus gravy (Heinz)

1 container (2 lbs.) refrigerated mashed potatoes

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

DIRECTIONS

Heat broiler. Heat ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef, onion, garlic, thyme and pepper; cook, breaking up meat, 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in vegetables, tomatoes and gravy; simmer, covered, 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat potatoes in microwave as package directs. Drop spoonfuls of potatoes on top of beef mixture; sprinkle with Parmesan. Place under broiler for 3 to 5 minutes until topping is browned.
