I have a ridiculously busy schedule so although I love to cook, sometimes I am so tired, putting the ingredients together and standing there to make the food is a huge task. Now, because I enjoy a good home cooked meal, and of course being someone who cooks well, I am quite selective when I eat food I did not cook. In this post, I will be reviewing Nestle’s Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce and I will also give tips on getting the best out of it. Keep in mind, this post contains affiliate links.

When I first saw the box of Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce, I thought to myself, oh boy, another TV dinner. No, thank you! It took me weeks and a random decision to purchase a box. The motivation was simply because I absolutely love Lasagna, it was clearly stated that it has no preservatives, and I was so hungry and tired that day, I had to put my food snobbish antics aside and eat something that did not require preparation. Let me just say I am glad I made that purchase.
The box says you can prepare it two ways; by microwaving it or by cooking it in an oven. I opted for the oven because I am not a big fan of Microwaving food that should be cook properly. I pre-heated my oven at 350 degrees and waited for about 5 minutes before chucking it in. I let it cook for about an hour, checking on it frequently till I was satisfied that it was fully cooked. The Lasagna when oven cooked, cooks as close to freshly made lasagna as you will get from a frozen dinner. The next step is to take it out let it sit to cool off a bit and then you are good to go.
I have tried the microwave method for one of my subsequent purchases, it turned out delicious but I still prefer the oven method. As far as taste goes, Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce is tasty enough. Of course, it can’t be compared to the fresh Lasagna from the family owned Italian restaurant down the street, but It is way better than what a TV dinner should be. The no preservatives factor is also an added plus for me. If you are someone who loves Italian food or lasagna as much as I do, you definitely want to give it a shot. If you a tired of bland TV dinners, then this will give you a new perspective that not all TV dinners are tasteless. Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce comes recommended.
Have you tried it before. If so what did you think?
