2 cups frozen peas and carrots, thawed, drained
6 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American, chopped
2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans condensed reduced sodium cream of chicken soup

Heat oven to 350°F.  Place butter into 13x9-inch baking dish; melt in oven.

Combine all remaining ingredients in bowl. Spread over crust. Top with stars, buttered-side up. Bake 45-50 minutes or until bubbly around edges and stars are toasted.
