1 lb. lean ground beef

2 1/2 cups Green Giant Frozen Mixed Vegetables

1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add ground beef and onion; cook until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.

Set aside 12 peas for garnish. Add remaining frozen vegetables, tomatoes and gravy; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 8 - 10 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, in med. saucepan, bring water, butter and garlic powder to a boil. Remove from heat; add milk. Stir in potato flakes and cheese. Add egg; blend well.

Spoon ground beef mixture into ungreased 8 in. square (2 qt.) or oval (2 1/2 qt.) glass baking dish. With large spoon, make 6 mounds of potato mixture on top of beef mixture to resemble ghosts. Place 2 reserved peas on each mound to resemble eyes.
