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

  1. 1

    Cook the Turkey

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add ground turkey, seasoning blend, and 1/4 tsp. salt to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer turkey to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    While turkey cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1" dice.

    Stem jalapeño, seed, remove ribs, and cut into 1/4" dice. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to cook turkey to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add red bell pepper, jalapeno, and 1/4 tsp. salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until peppers are fork-tender, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the Sauce and Pasta

    Add turkey and flour to hot pan and stir until no dry flour remains.

    Add cream base, chicken base, 2/3 the cheese (reserve remaining for topping), 1 cup water, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer.

    One simmering, stir occasionally until combined, 1-2 minutes.

    Stir in pasta until combined and heated through, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Broil and Finish Dish

    Top pasta with remaining cheese.

    Place pan under hot broiler and broil until cheese melts and bubbles, 3-4 minutes.

    Don't text and broil! Keep an eye on the broiler as cheese may burn easily.

    Carefully remove from broiler. Pan handle will be hot! Use an oven mitt. Rest, 1 minute.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pasta with salsa. Bon appétit!
