For this post I have partnered with Lean Cuisine through DailyBuzz Food to help promote their new line of Chef’s Pick products. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with this product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Thank you Lean Cuisine!
Today’s hottest chefs have brought their freshest thinking to the Lean Cuisine kitchen. The Cuisine Culinary Roundtable chefs – Michelle Bernstein, Brad Farmerie, Paul Kahan, Anita Lo, Lior Lev Sercarz & Lucien Vendome – are embracing the bolder colors and tastes of the season to create recipes with exciting flavors for Lean Cuisine’s Culinary Collection. With varieties such as Ranchero Braised Beef, Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli and Chile Lime Chicken, Lean Cuisine’s Culinary Collection offers something delicious for every palate.
I want to start off by saying that I can count the number of times that I have eaten a frozen meal on one hand. So I was amazed to see that I could have a ready to eat meal in less than 3 minutes.
The first item I tried from the culinary collection was the deep dish spinach & mushroom pizza. I was not sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised by the taste.
The pizza was a smaller size than what I was expecting and the taste was light and flavorful.
I did share the slices of the pizza with my parents, so I can’t comment on if I would have felt full from just that pizza. My favorite part was the topping of the pizza, it was creamy without being too rich.
Since, this was a frozen meal- I was expecting the nutritional information to be off the charts. However, I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw.
Next up was the thee cheese stuffed rigatoni- once again in 3 minutes I had a meal ready to eat.
I enjoyed this meal so much that I almost wished for a bigger portion size!
The dish was not overwhelmingly cheesy (which is not a bad thing) but I loved that I tasted so many different vegetables!
Do you eat frozen food? Why or why not?
