  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a pot filled with water, boil potatoes for 4 to 6 minutes, just until tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add onion and sauté, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes. Add ground beef and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.
  4. Season beef with thyme, parsley, fennel, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and sauté, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  5. Dissolve arrowroot powder, tapioca starch or tapioca flour into broth, pour into pan and allow mixture to come to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in tomatoes and Greek yogurt.
  6. Transfer meat mixture to a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Slice potatoes into 1/8-inch thick slices and arrange them on top of the meat in an overlapping pattern.
  7. Top with shredded cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
