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) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 20-25 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Drain shrimp thoroughly. Pat dry.

    Combine bacon, mirepoix base, cream base, 2 Tbsp. water, cream cheese, and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.

    Stir in pasta until combined. Top with shrimp.

  2. 2

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-15 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Meal

    Carefully remove tray from oven. Stir in lemon juice, peas, and half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish) until creamy.

    Bake again uncovered in hot oven until peas are heated through, 3-5 minutes.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    To serve, garnish with remaining Parmesan and red pepper flakes (to taste). Bon appétit!
