This week on Food Network’s Recipe to Riches was my favourite catagory – Frozen Entrees! Winner Rick Matharu created this amazing fusion on an easily accessible food, the Lasagna! We were not only shocked but amazed how delicious the Butter Chicken Lasagna really was and right after we ate it, we were already talking about purchasing more and keeping it in our freezer! This episode was a great episode as all the competitors were great and the products were awesome! I was rooting for Rick, so I am ecstatic that he won this category! These Lasagnas come in a frozen “dish” weighing in at 1KG and it’s a great value in my opinion at $7.99!
I love how even the box has such personality, funk and style – as Rick did in the episode! When it came to making the product, I could either zap the entire thing in the microwave for about 16-20 minutes or pop it in the oven for about an hour at 375F and then peel off the top film for anther 10 minutes. (well, I did mine for 10 minutes as it was a beautiful colour already). So, with that said, it’s not an instant frozen meal, but it’s not harder than a frozen pizza, and I must admit, I would run for this butter chicken lasagna over a frozen pizza now!
As this was completely prepared and ready to serve, my husband came home and said “smells like curry!”, and he was right for a change! The house had a beautiful delicious curry aroma, and honestly, it’s not a scent we get at home often at all! When we actually sat down to enjoy this product, we couldn’t stop eating! I’m sure the both of us could have finished the entire lasagna in one sitting, but I put it away to refrain from doing that!
The Lasagna was not only rich in flavours, more Tandoori style than “butter chicken”, but regardless, it was excellent and delicious!! Tons of actual pieces of chicken, and layers of vegetables. We’re already planning to pick this product out while we pick up the item for next weeks show! This product is now our favourite and could be in our household to stay! Hope Rick brings home the big one! 😉
