Michael Angelo's Italian Frozen Food - Review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
When I was growing up, having a frozen meal was considered a treat in our house. Remember those old tv dinners with food that came in a tray, tasted like cardboard, and had no nutritional value? Having one of those on a tv tray in the family room, surrounded by my sisters and their tv dinners, while we watched a tv show - THAT was like a party to me. Frozen foods have really come a long way!
I was invited to try Michael Angelo's Italian frozen food entrees. Italian food is one of my favorites and it falls under the heading of "comfort food" to me. Michael Angelo's has a line of signature meals with recipes that date back to the 1800s. The meals are made in small batches from scratch, are free of additives, and are made with only real, clean ingredients you can recognize when you read the label.
I've tried six of the meals and I'm incredibly impressed. Michael Angelo's meals are delicious. My absolute favorite is the Meat Lasagna. I would put it in the top three lasagna meals I've ever had in my lifetime. I also really loved the flavor of the meatballs in the Baked Ziti and Meatballs meal.
Each one cooks in the microwave in around five minutes in a little tray that has a thin plastic sheet over the top. I sort of butchered the lasagna taking it out of the tray to put on a plate for a picture, but it was stacked really nicely in the tray.
The chicken in the Chicken Parmesan was delectable. I thought the piece of chicken looked a bit small when I took it out of the microwave, but it was a really thick piece and tasted wonderful. None of the pastas were sticky at all and the sauces are all delightfully flavored. The entrees are the perfect size for lunch or dinner for one person.
I definitely recommend Michael Angelo's Italian frozen meals. They've also recently introduced a new line of Made With Organic meals, which I'm going to try as soon as I can find them. Since I live in a very small town outside of Austin, it can be challenging to get my hands on some of the specialty foods, but I hear Whole Foods features them.
Visit www.michaelangelos.com for more information about these delicious Italian meals. I got my entrees at my local HEB and I've seen the family size meals at my local Walmart. Their website has some great videos and you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more.
