Simple Shepherd’s Pie

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil   *   3 small carrots, chopped   
¾ cup chopped onion   *    1 lb. ground beef 
1-2 Tbsp. flour   *   1½ cups of frozen peas 
 1½ cups of frozen corn   
2 ½ tsp. McCormick Italian Herb Grinder herbs  
Salt and pepper   *   ¾ cup beef broth   *   3 cups mashed potatoes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add carrots and onions and cook until tender.  Add ground beef and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until browned.  Stir in flour and cook 3 more minutes.  Stir in peas, corn and herbs.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour in beef broth and stir.  Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened.  Season with additional salt and pepper to taste if necessary.  Transfer to a deep dish pie pan.  Spread mashed potatoes on top the beef mixture.  Bake until golden on top and heated through, about 25-30 minutes.
