  • Spread into a greased 9x13 casserole. Set aside while you make potatoes.
  • For potatoes:
  • Cook potatoes in boiling salted water for 20 minutes or until softened.
  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine oil and garlic and cook until softened, taking care not to burn garlic. (5 minutes)
  • Drain the potatoes, but reserve about 1/2 c of the water.
  • Mash the potatoes, the kidney beans, and the garlic mixture together, using some of the reserved water for moistening. Stir in the parsley.
  • Spoon the potatoes over the meat in the casserole dish.
  • Combine the parmesan and bread crumbs together then sprinkle over top of the potatoes.
  • Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 oven. Yum
