MorningStar Farms Lasagna with Sausage-Style Crumbles
MorningStar Farms’ Lasagna with Sausage-Style Crumbles is one of MorningStar Farms’ entrées that was new to me and as a dedicated MorningStar food fan, I was surprised this one had slipped past me. When I saw it at my local Walmart I had to snatch it up. With 42% less fat than the leading frozen lasagna entrée, 270 calories per serving and 20g of protein that I desperately need as a pescatarian I thought this would be a definite “Yea!”. MorningStar Farms rarely disappoints me but unfortunately this meal didn’t quite do it for me.
MorningStar Farms advertises their lasagna as,
“Layers of veggie sausage crumbles, noodles, cheese, tender vegetables and zesty marinara sauce.”
So here’s where my complaints begin. Veggie sausage crumbles? I saw none in my meal. Obviously defective. I buy their veggie sausage crumbles alone to cook into pasta sauce so I knew what I was looking for and what I was looking forward to. Was I let down? Yes, yes I was. Onto the noodles. I was really looking forward to soft tender noodles (I tend to be quite the pasta fan), and to be fair maybe this was my fault, I did microwave instead of using the oven, but the noodles were a bit tough. As far as the cheese and zesty marinara sauce go I have no complaints. Not too much, not too little. But the veggies? I think I had maybe three pieces of zucchini the size of my thumbnail. Jeremy would love this. Me? Not so much. Sigh.
I have to say, this was edible but it certainly didn’t make my top 5 favorite MorningStar Farms foods. I’ll give it a “Meh…”
