Turkey Pasta Florentine Bake

This post brought to you by KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese and Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since I started working full time again, I barely have time to cook dinner after I come home. Ok maybe I do have enough time, but I am simply too exhausted to get all fancy in the kitchen. That’s why I really appreciate casserole dishes like this Turkey Pasta Florentine Bake.

As you know I love the #StandUpCheeese pouches from KRAFT. So I once again went to Safeway and bought 2 more :)

The recipe from this is originally from the KRAFT website, but I did some major tweaks like using ground meat instead of chicken and being more generous with my cheese on top :)

This is a super comforting every-day week night dinner that your whole family will enjoy and depending on what ingredients you use, it can be healthy!

So simply look at the ingredients and swap them out to your liking.

What you need:

2 cups multi-grain pasta, uncooked

1 lb. ground turkey

2 Tbsp. flour

2 Tbsp. KRAFT Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing

1 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 oz. fat free Cream Cheese

1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained

2 cups KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

2 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese

How you make it:

Heat oven to 375ºF. Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt. 

Meanwhile, toss ground turkey with flour. Heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 3 min. or until evenly browned. Add broth and cream cheese; cook 3 min. or until cream cheese is melted, stirring frequently. Stir in spinach.

Drain pasta. Add to chicken mixture; mix lightly. Spoon half into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; top with 1 cup mozzarella. Repeat layers; sprinkle with Parmesan. 

Bake 20 to 23 min. or until mozzarella is melted and casserole is heated through.

I am very happy KRAFT has their shredded cheese in a stand-up pouch now. Less mess in the kitchen, happier me :)

You can find the stand-up pouches at Safeway Just For You, so the next time you are there, you might want to grab a few pouches for easy week night dinners!
