Recipe Steps

Before You Cook

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 20 oz. steak strips, follow same instructions as 10 oz. steak strips.

  • If using diced chicken, pat dry. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Steps 1 and 3, in Step 1, baking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 15-20 minutes, and in Step 3, baking until heated through, 10-15 minutes.

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry, and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Steps 1 and 3, in Step 1, baking until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes, and in Step 3, baking until heated through, 10-15 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Steak Strips

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

    Separate steak strips into a single layer, pat dry, and coarsely chop.

    Combine steak strips and flour in provided tray until no dry flour remains. Stir in 2/3 cup water, chicken base, cream cheese, and seasoning blend until combined. Cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until broth begins to thicken, no pink remains on steak strips, and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 15-20 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add the Pasta

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    Stir in pesto (to taste), corn, pasta, half the shredded cheese (reserve remaining for garnish), and 1/4 tsp. salt until combined.

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

  3. 3

    Bake the Dish

    Bake again uncovered in hot oven until heated through, 10-15 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Garnish with remaining shredded cheese. Bon appétit!
