Recipe Steps

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 beef, follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 17-20 minutes.

  • 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, 16-18 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Layer spinach, pasta, marinara, and cream cheese in provided tray. Top with shredded cheese. Spinach will wilt and cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.

  2. 2

    Add the Sausage

    Remove sausage from casing, if necessary, and break into pieces. Place sausage pieces on pasta.

  3. 3

    Bake the Dish

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until browned and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 15-20 minutes.

    Carefully remove tray from oven. Stir until cream cheese is incorporated. Bon appétit!
