A note about serious food allergies
If you're ready for a fresh take on “spaghetti and red sauce,” this is the meal for you. Sun-dried tomatoes create a jammy, concentrated flavor base for this pesto in a pasta dish that's intense in the best possible way. It's accentuated by grape tomatoes, fresh spinach, and slivered almonds for a meal that's just as easy as sauce from a jar, and way more satisfying. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Meatlovers! Cook proteins in a large non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. If using chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side. If using Beyond sausage, crumble into bite-sized pieces. Cook, breaking up with a spoon, until warmed through, 6-8 minutes. Vegetarian sausage will not brown. If using shrimp, cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes. Add to pasta as desired.
Cook the Pasta
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup pasta cooking water.
Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.
While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Coarsely chop tomatoes.
Halve baguette lengthwise.
Stack two spinach leaves, roll up, and slice thinly across the width. (Reserve remaining whole leaves for pasta.)
Roast Tomatoes and Bake Garlic Bread
Combine tomatoes, half the garlic (reserve remaining for bread), 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper on one half of prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer on their half.
Place baguette on other half of baking sheet, cut side up. Top with 1 tsp. olive oil, remaining garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Roast in hot oven until baguette is toasted and lightly browned and tomatoes have softened, 7-10 minutes.
Finish the Pasta
Return pot used to cook pasta to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add whole spinach leaves and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pot and stir until just wilted, 30-60 seconds.
Stir in sun-dried tomato pesto until warmed through, 1 minute.
If too dry, add pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Remove from burner and stir in pasta and roasted tomatoes.
Finish the Dish
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with slivered almonds, red pepper flakes (to taste), and thinly sliced spinach. Bon appétit!
