Shepherd's Pie

I made this for St. Patrick's day and it was so yummy and easy that I'll be adding this to our dinner rotation!

1 pound ground beef
1 can Cream of Mushroom
1 tbs ketchup
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
2 cups instant mashed potatoes (prepared according to box)

Preheat oven to 400. Brown beef in skillet. When cooked, add soup, ketchup, pepper, peas, and carrots to skillet. Spoon mixture into pie plate. Spoon prepared mashed potatoes on top of mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned. Optional: add shredded cheese to top and bake additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
