  • 2 pounds russet or Idaho potatoes peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion peeled, chopped
  • 1 large carrot peeled, chopped
  • 1 pound ground lamb or turkey
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
