  • 2 pounds of pasta cooked under al dente
  • 2 pounds of ground turkey
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon adobo
  • 2 tablespoons of Badia sazon complete
  • 2 packs of sazon
  • 1/4 cup of sofrito
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro chopped
  • 2 jars of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 large container of ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large pan over medium high, brown ground turkey, onions, and seasonings, about 6-8 minutes. Then add sofrito, cilantro, and spaghetti sauce. Heat sauce and add in ricotta cheese. Turn off heat.
  • In a 9x13 greased pan add in half of the pasta and half of the meat mixture, toss it together, and top with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes, take off aluminum and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden color.
  • For the rest of the pasta and meat mixture, place into a freezer Ziploc bag and freeze until ready to make. To make the freezer meal, follow the steps above, but cook for an hour covered, then 10 minutes uncovered.
