A note about serious food allergies
We've never steered you wrong with a bowl of comfort pasta before, and this guy is not only comforting… he's interesting! Sweet soft butternut and buttery hard walnuts are both giving a slight dash of spices with Cajun seasoning, then added to a pasta with a rich Alfredo sauce and tangy goat cheese. We're steering you right yet again.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Meat lovers! If using protein, cook in a large non-stick pan over medium heat with 2 tsp. olive oil If using diced chicken, pat dry, season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using Italian sausage, remove sausage from casing. Break up sausage until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 7-9 minutes. If using shrimp, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes. If using Beyond Sausage, crumble into bite-sized piecs. Stir occasionally until warmed through, 6-8 minutes. Vegetarian sausage will not brown. Add to pasta as desired.
