Shepherds Pie

 This is what I made last night for dinner and it was really yummy!  Let me know if you try it out and if you did anything different to it.
Shepherds Pie

4 cups Water
2 cups Potato Pearls
1 can Diced Tomatoes
2 cups Shredded Cheddar
1 can Green Beans  
½ cup Milk
1 pint Beef (drained) or 1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 T Olive Oil
2 t Salt
1 t Minced Garlic
2 t Pepper

Boil the 4 cups water and then add the potato pearls. (You can do this at the same time you do the following.) In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef (already cooked and canned, drained), up to 2 teaspoons salt and up to 2 teaspoons black pepper to taste. Heat through (If you have raw beef then brown the beef and drain) and then add the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the green beans (drained) and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes (drained) and cook a few more minutes. Add ½ cup milk and cook, stirring, for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and reserve for later use. Spread half of the potatoes in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour in the meat mixture, and top with the remaining mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with the cheese and bake until bubbly and golden brown, about 30 min.
