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 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp.

  • If using steak strips or flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 20-25 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Mix pasta, corn, peppers, salsa, cream cheese, 2 tsp. olive oil, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Spread into an even layer. Cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.

  2. 2

    Add the Shrimp

    Pat shrimp dry. Top pasta with shrimp.

  3. 3

    Finish the Dish

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 20-25 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Stir in butter and half the Parmesan until melted and creamy. Crush tortillas. Top meal with remaining Parmesan and tortillas. Bon appétit!
