Ghostly Shepherd's Pie

This is a Betty Crocker recipe, great for those Halloween suppers!
1lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1medium onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
2 1/2cups frozen mixed vegetables
2cups diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained (from 28-oz can)
1 jar (12 oz) beef gravy
1 3/4cups water
2tablespoons margarine
1/4teaspoon garlic powder
1/2cup milk
2 1/4cups instant mashed potatoes (dry)
1/4cup grated Parmesan cheese
1egg, slightly beaten

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12" skillet with cooking spray. Add beef and onion and cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.Set 12 peas (from frozen vegetables) aside for garnish. Add remaining frozen vegetables, tomatoes and gravy to beef mixture. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp tender..In 2-quart saucepan, heat water, butter and garlic powder to boiling. Remove from heat; add milk. Stir in dry potatoes and cheese. Add egg; blend well.Spoon beef mixture into ungreased 8" square (2-quart) or oval (2 1/2-quart) 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.Bake 20 to 25 minutes or till potatoes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated. 6 servings
