Heat, Season, and Serve

We delivered this meal fresh because it tastes best that way (heated of course!). If you need to freeze it to cook later, no worries, that works too.


Remove plastic from tray. 

Microwave: Cook 4–5 minutes (10–12 if frozen). 

Oven: Cover with foil and bake at 425°F, 20–25 minutes (40–50 if frozen, stirring after 20 minutes). 

We seasoned this lightly. Add salt and pepper to your heart’s content.


Ovens may vary. Per USDA recommendations, heat to at least 165°F. Do not expose tray to open flame or direct contact with heating element.
