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 ground pork, follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 20-25 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Combine pasta, tomato sauce, marinara, and chipotle pepper paste (to taste) in provided tray until completely combined.

  2. 2

    Add the Meatballs

    Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary. In a mixing bowl, combine Italian sausage, panko, and ricotta. Form into eight equally-sized mini meatballs. Place meatballs on pasta.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until Italian sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 18-20 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 5 minutes. Garnish with Parmesan and red pepper flakes (to taste). Bon appétit!
