So after a long week at work, I was incredibly excited to pick up Dragon Quest VII on Friday afternoon, as well as have my sons come to visit – but then suddenly, it wasn’t Friday anymore. I have let you down, my devoted subjects. But I shall attempt to make it up – here, without further ado, here is another (slightly late) edition of #FrozenFoodFridays!
This week, I bring you the deliciousness of Bertolli Italian Sausage and Rigatoni. I’m a total sucker for pasta. The problem is that most frozen pasta is awful. No seriously, it never cooks right. But these Bertolli frozen meals are goddamn amazing. Meat, sauce, noodles, everything is just dumped in the skillet, cooked for about ten minutes, and you have a meal that could fool most people into thinking you had put effort into it. One thing I love is that the sauce is frozen into little individual blocks, which thaw and spread out evenly as you heat everything. This is so much better than a giant fucking block of frozen sauce that you have to sit and try to chip away at yourself to keep it evenly distributed.
If I have one complaint, it’s that when they say a non-stick skillet, THEY ARE NOT KIDDING. If you have a standard skillet without a non-stick surface, even if you butter or oil it first you had better keep stirring it constantly to avoid it becoming permanently glued to the skillet. I don’t like having to scrape my dinner onto my plate. But as long as you are paying attention, this shouldn’t happen – and if you can’t pay attention to something for ten fucking minutes, you shouldn’t be allowed to cook for yourself anyway.
Hopefully I have earned your forgiveness for my tardiness! I hope to be back later tonight with more to share. – EWE
