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 Beyond Sausage, crumble into bite-sized pieces. Follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 2, breaking up "sausage", until warmed through, 6-8 minutes. Vegetarian sausage will not brown.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 2, cooking undisturbed until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 2, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 2, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. On a separate cutting board, remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Cook the Italian Sausage

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 4 tsp. olive oil. Add Italian sausage and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir often, breaking into small pieces, until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains in pan.

  3. 3

    Make the Sauce

    Add ¾ cup water, chicken broth concentrate, cream cheese, and red pepper pesto to hot pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring often. Once simmering, stir often until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in pasta, Parmesan, and roasted red peppers until combined and heated through. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pasta with goat cheese (crumbling if necessary) and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
