  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 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, if necessary. Break up sausage into smaller pieces and place on pasta.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 18-22 minutes. Carefully remove from oven.
