# Pre-heat oven to 200C/400F.
# 2 Saute carrots in the olive oil until starting to get tender.
# 3 Add in the onions and saute for a minute or two then add the meat.
# 4 Season with black pepper and thyme.
# 5 Cook until browned then drain fat.
# 6 Add the butter and peas.
# 7 Sprinkle with flour and stir through.
# 8 Add tomato paste, wine and Worcestershire sauce.
# 9 Let this reduce slightly then add the chicken stock. Allow to reduce down until you have a thick meaty gravy. Season to your taste.
# 10 Remove from heat. Grease an oven proof dish** (9x13 works for me, as does an oval baker) with butter and add the sauce.
# 11 Spoon or pipe the mashed potatoes over top. Brush with egg and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if using.
# 12 Bake for about 20 minutes or until the potato is nice and browned on top.
# 13 Serve as is or with some crusty bread to mop up that yummy sauce!
