Annie’s Homegrown Frozen Entrée Review

****I received a complimentary frozen entrée for testing purposes from Influenster.


Like many mommies with young children, dinner time is (or the preparing of dinner) can be pretty hectic. Even with all the chaos I want my children to experience good quality sit down family dinners, with wholesome, nutritious, and also yummy foods. However, expectation and reality can have two totally different outcomes! That’s why when I was invited to review Annie’s Homegrown Frozen Entrée, I was really excited! I’m all for readymade food- but have sworn off of them recently because they tend to be loaded in salt and preservatives. Annie’s is different however; it is all organic (which I love!), and made with 100% real cheese (which is a MUST in my house- I am a bit of a cheese snob).

While browsing around Target I decided on getting the Family Size Frozen Lasagna with Meat Sauce. My hubby and kids love lasagna and I never make it, so I thought it would be a nice treat for them.

 You have two options when preparing- microwave and oven. I decided to prepare mine in the oven. You bake it at 350 degrees for 40 minutes with the cover film left on, and after 40 minutes you remove the film and bake for another 25 minutes. I have to admit that when I first opened the box the lasagna looked small and I was afraid it wouldn’t get the entire family full. My son and hubby might be on the thinner side but they can sure put away food.

I wasn’t completely impressed when the final product came out of the oven. The cheese on top seemed to be lacking. Again, I am a cheese snob and like my food generally covered in melted, cheesy glory.  I solved this problem by adding some of my own cheese on top while it was still hot. Overall, it was great and I will definitely be purchasing this product again!
