Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If adding protein, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using diced chicken breasts, stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using Impossible burger, break up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes. If using ground turkey, break up turkey until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. Add to skillet as desired.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Pesto Ricotta

    Break noodles into large pieces.

    Stem and quarter red bell pepper. Remove ribs and seeds.

    Coarsely chop spinach.

    In a mixing bowl, combine pesto and ricotta. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Roast the Red Bell Pepper

    Place red bell pepper quarters on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt.

    Roast in hot oven until softened, 12-15 minutes.

    Transfer roasted red bell pepper to a cutting board and let cool, 5 minutes. Once cooled, coarsely chop.

    While red bell pepper roasts, cook noodles.

  3. 3

    Cook the Noodles

    Once water is boiling, add noodles and cook until al dente, 7-9 minutes.

    Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water. Drain noodles in a colander. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Make the Lasagna Skillet

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add spinach to hot pan and stir occasionally until just wilted, 2-3 minutes.

    Add red bell pepper, marinara sauce, garlic salt, and noodles. Stir occasionally until combined and heated through, 1-2 minutes.

    If too thick, add reserved pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  5. 5

    Melt Cheese and Finish Dish
