I could never be a food blogger. Mostly because I’m not a very able cook. It’s simply not my area of expertise. Just like I long for delicious home-cooked meals, I also dream about sitting at the table with my 3 smiling children as we jubilantly tell stories of our day, all while positioned pleasantly scooping spoonful bites in between tales. Some things just aren’t going to happen.
I’ve gotten a lot better over the years, though, especially recently. If I don’t cook, then we don’t eat. And if I’m going to spend the time and energy, I would like for it to taste good. But I still take a lot of help from prepackaged ingredients and frozen meals. In fact, I think I’ve tried them all.
Which is why I was excited to try Marie Callender’s new Three Meat and Four Cheese Lasagna.
Marie Callender’s claims that their frozen lasagna tastes like homemade. In fact, they’re so sure of it that they even offer a money back guarantee. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had homemade lasagna. Clearly, my own mother was not big on labor-intensive meals, either. But I can say it was very good.
Their innovative baking tray minimizes burnt edges and promotes even cooking, even in the microwave where it only takes 19 minutes to heat through. I put mine in the oven, however. Where I think I may have left it in for too long because some of my noodles were overcooked and my cheese burned on top. Lessons learned.
I’m surprised I can boil water properly.
We all ate our hearty portion, though, and I found myself wishing I had more. Since I’m not a great fan of marinara, I may try one of their other bakes next time. Their Creamy Chicken Alfredo with Sun-dried Tomatoes looks particularly mouth-watering. Although my kids would probably love their Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese.
