Wise Cheesy Lasagna Review Instant Meal (Video Review Included)

Postby Daley » Wed Jun 22, 2016 4:54 pm

Hey there MRE fans! Back with another review for you. This time for the Wise Company Cheesy Lasagna. This packet was included in a box from survivalboxes subscription services.

Image

So first off the is a decent portion of food. over 250 grams, which was nice. Opening the package I was met with a strong smell of Chef Boyardee like meat sauce. This particular pack had a very long ingredient list, but basically you have a cheesy meat sauce powder, dehydrated meat chunks and pasta. This meal also had a great cook time. Right around 20 minutes, so its prefect for quick meal prep and consumption.

Now on to the food. The one thing I am learning quickly is pasta gets a bad card when it comes to these instant meals. It seems there is no proper way to get a good pasta dish going, since they seem to become very soggy in the re-hydration steps most of these meals call for in the cooking process. I am happy to say however this didnt ruin the meal. It was very good, you could taste the cheesy meat sauce well, and the pasta while a big soggy still tasted just fine. I was also pleased with the amount of bite the meat had when combined with the pasta. To me its very important that what ever you are eating have some sort of chew-able process. As I believe that gives you a mental edge on your hunger.

This meal overall was good, plenty-full, and easy to prepare. To recap my issues were the way pasta is with most of these meals and thats about it. I found it to be more then enough to feed a few people and tasted great.
