Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground beef in a large skillet; drain off all fat. Stir in the seasoning mix and water and cook until thickened. Add tomato paste. Cover the skillet, lower the heat to simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the beans and mushrooms. Pour mixture into a lightly greased 2-quart casserole dish and top with the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until bubbly and heated through.
