I love to cook and bake but on certain nights of the week, I don't have time to do it from scratch. On these particular nights, I turn to dinners that are in my freezer. When I make and serve frozen dinners to my family, I want them to taste like they were made from scratch, contain no preservatives and I want them to be quick and easy in their preparation.
About Michael Angelo's: The company was founded in 1982 in San Diego and has been based in Austin, Texas since 1993. All of the Michael Angelo's frozen Italian meals are prepared with love, using the highest quality ingredients. You can find the company's products in grocery stores, club stores and natural food stores across America. Once the frozen dinner has been made, it is quickly shipped to stores within 36 hours through a made-to-order process that eliminates the need for a warehouse and guarantees freshness unmatched in the frozen food aisle.
My Review: I was sent a coupon to go out and pick up any Michael Angelo's product and we decided to try their Meat Lasagna dinner. This is a complete frozen dinner that you keep frozen until ready-to-use. It contains no preservatives and is made with imported Pecorino Romano Cheese and Vine-Ripened Tomatoes. It is made in small batches and made from scratch which ensures an exceptional quality product.
When you look at the ingredients list printed right on the box, you will recognize every ingredient on the list. There are no funky names or funky ingredients that you wouldn't recognize and I really appreciate that. Now, you might be thinking that this dinner is high in calories, but it's not! There are 290 calories per serving with 90 calories being from fat. Per serving, this dinner has a lot less calories than traditional fast food! Yeah!
The smell was absolutely amazing and we couldn't wait to "dig-in". We sat down together as a family and enjoyed a really nice dinner together. My hubby and daughter were raving about this Michael Angelo's Meat Lasagna and both said it tasted better than my homemade lasagna! The lasagna noodles were tender, but not rubbery. The meat sauce was flavorful and had just the right amount of seasonings. The cheese was melty, gooey and had a wonderful taste! Yummy!
Overall, we loved this lasagna dinner and since reviewing it...we have purchased three more! If you love to serve frozen dinners to your family on those busy nights when you don't have time to cook from scratch, Michael Angelo's frozen dinners are definitely the way to go! We give this dinner a huge 2-spoons (2-thumbs) up!
