  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. When ingredient appears in recipe, remove from packaging. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Combine pasta, ¼ cup water, tomatoes, corn, and a pinch of salt and pepper in provided tray.

  2. 2

    Add the Sausage

    Top pasta with cream cheese. Cream cheese will melt as pasta bakes. Remove sausage from casing. Break up sausage and place on pasta. If using 16 oz. sausage, follow same instructions. If ground turkey, Italian sausage, or ground beef, break into small pieces, add a pinch of salt and follow same instructions.

  3. 3

    Finish the Dish

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until meal reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 18-22 minutes. If using 16 oz. Italian sausage or ground beef, follow same instructions. If using ground turkey, bake uncovered in hot oven until meal reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 18-22 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Stir in pesto, half the Asiago (reserve remaining for topping), and a pinch of salt and pepper until creamy. Rest meal, 3 minutes. Coarsely crush croutons. Top pasta with remaining Asiago and croutons. Bon appétit!
