1 lg bag Mix Frozen Vegetables
1 lb ground Lamb or Hamburger
1 Onion, chopped
1 clove Garlic, chopped
8 oz Tomato Sauce
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp ground Black Pepper
1/4 tsp dried Thyme
1/4 tsp dried Sage or Rosemary
3 C prepared Mashed Potatoes (4 lg Potatoes)
1/2 C Milk, or as needed
2 T grated Parmesan Cheese

Preheat the oven to 350. Place the vegetables into a large saucepan and fill with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil, cover, and steam for 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Meanwhile, crumble the ground meet into a large skillet set over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until meet is no longer pink. Drain off any grease. Stir in the steamed vegetables and tomato sauce. Season with salt, pepper, thyme and sage. Transfer everything to a greased 7x11 inch baking dish. Mix enough milk into the mashed potatoes to make them spreadable. Spread them over the top of the casserole and garnish with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is browned and the casserole is heated through.
