2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the pasta

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the penne rigate and cook until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Add the sweet pea pistou and Italian dressing and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cover to keep warm.

While the water is heating and the penne is cooking, start preparing the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the squash and onion

  • Cut the squash in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, arrange the squash and onion in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring once, until lightly browned on both sides and just starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Do not clean the pan.

While the vegetables are cooking, start preparing your protein.


Prep your protein

  • Steak strips or diced chicken: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. 


Cook your protein

In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp; 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, or plant-based chicken; and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. 


Transfer the pasta to individual bowls and top with the vegetables and your protein. Crumble over the feta and serve.
