> 1 1/2 lb baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
> 1/2 cup heavy cream
> 1/4 cup olive oil
> 1 large onion, chopped
> 1 clove garlic, minced
> 2 large carrots, diced
> 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
> 1 lb ground beef
> 2 tsp fresh oregano, minced
> 2 tbsp tomato paste
> 2 tbsp flour
> 2 cups beef broth
> 1 cup fresh green peas
> 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large pot of salted water, cook potatoes until soft, about 15 min. Drain thorough and mash. Stir in heavy cream and 2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt (in moderation) and pepper and set aside, covered.
In a large skillet, heat remaining olive oil over medium low heat. Add onion, carrot, mushrooms and garlic and cook 5 min. Raise heat to medium high and add ground beef. Cook, stirring frequently until meat is browned, about 5 min. Add oregano and tomato paste and cook, stirring, 2 min. Sprinkle with flour and cook a further 1 min. Add beef broth and bring to a simmer, stirring to keep gravy smooth. Add peas. Simmer until vegetables are cooked and gravy is thickened, 5-10 min.
Transfer contents to a greased baking dish. Top with mashed potatoes and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for ½ hour, or until browned and bubbly.
