How to Make It
Prep time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 35 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat large skillet with spray; place on medium heat. Brown meat for 5 minutes, or until no longer pink, stirring often. Add salt, pepper, and thyme, and stir.
Line the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch casserole with a single layer of potatoes. Pour milk over. Top with peas and corn, then meat, then half the cheese, then sauce. Top with remaining cheese and dash of paprika. Bake on middle rack for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
