I walked in to Aldi’s in Pembroke Pines and was in Gluten Free heaven. There was pasta, cake mixes, pizza, and chicken nuggets….there was cookies, chips, granola bars, and hot pockets. It was pre-made gluten-free ecstasy. I couldn’t leave without picking up something to try, so I settled on a package of Live G-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. We are chocolate chip cookie lovers at our house and have probably sampled just about every variety of Gluten Free chocolate chip cookies we have found. Generally Gluten Free cookies run about 5.00 a package or more and these were only 2.99, so even if they weren’t great, I figured I was not out a lot of cash. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
Who doesn’t love a good lasagna? I have an amazing gluten-free lasagna recipe of my own (stay tuned, it will be up soon!), but when I saw this in the freezer section today at Target I just knew I had to try it. I love lasagna and I love an easy dinner, at 10.00 I felt that is was worth a try.
The directions on the package are easy to follow, you can microwave it or put it in the oven. I chose to put it in the oven. It takes almost an hour and fifteen minutes to cook, so be sure you have the time. On the plus side, you do not have to defrost it first. At first glance it looks just like a normal frozen lasagna. It is a bit small, serving size suggests for 3.5 servings.
It smelled amazing while cooking, and I couldn’t wait for the timer to go off. The instructions say to let it sit for five minutes, I would suggest at least fifteen. As I took it out of the oven it looked great, but was still a bit watery. It definitely needed to sit for a bit before cutting.
