Preparation method

1. Heat oil in large frying pan over moderate heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and broccoli. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Increase heat; add mince and, using a fork to break up lumps, cook until brown. Sprinkle with flour. Cook and stir constantly for 1 minute.

2. Stir in pasta sauce, reduce heat, simmer 15 minutes. Add peas and corn; simmer for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

3. Meanwhile, cook potato in boiling water for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain; return to pan. Mash with warm milk until smooth. Season to taste and stir in parsley.

4. Spoon beef mixture into 4 x 1-cup capacity ramekins. Top with mash and roughen the surface with the fork.

Use individual ramekins or ovenproof bowls, or a single 4-cup baking dish. ; For a crusty topping, lightly spray mash with cooking oil; place under a preheated moderate grill for 2-3 minutes.
