We were recently invited to try some of the newly launched Ready Meals, recently revamped by Morrisons. We were asked to chose from a selection of different dishes, ranging from Italian to Asian cuisine, in exchange for our honest review.
Morrisons Beef Lasagne – ‘Italian’ Range
Our first choice was from the Italian range, the crowd pleasing and family favourite Beef Lasagne. It is without doubt one of my favourites come teatime and this dish did not disappoint.
The Beef Lasagne serves 1 and can be cooked by microwave or oven. Both Trevor and I had our own serving and chose to cook our ‘trays’ by microwave.
The first thing I checked for and was pleased about was that the dish was not at all greasy. I have found some other supermarket versions to be just that and to be honest, that puts me off straight away.
We agreed that the layers of pasta were lovely and soft and that the meat/sauce was nice and rich. The whole dish was very flavorsome and I would definitely eat it again. Classic comfort food that is cheap, delicious and ready in a hurry! A huge win for me.
“A traditional ragu made with tempting red wine, Italian pancetta, smooth passata and British beef. Layered through with creamy béchamel sauce and our free-range egg pasta.”
Morrisons Katsu Chicken Curry – ‘A Taste of Asia’ Range
We also opted for the Katsu Chicken Curry from the ‘A Taste of Asia’ range. Each dish also served 1 and had to be part cooked by oven (the chicken) whilst the remainder (curry sauce and rice) had to be microwaved.
We removed the breaded chicken from its dish and cooked it on a baking tray in the oven. Towards the end of the chickens cooking time, the curry sauce and rice was microwaved in the same dish and then all of the components were served together once cooked.
We really enjoyed this one. The chicken was succulent and really tasty whilst the jasmine rice and spring onion remained nice and fresh. The curry sauce tasted really good and was mild to the palate (just the way I like it). Another thumbs up from us – Tasty, fresh, filling and an easy dish to cook.
“Crispy panko breaded chicken breast served with a glossy katsu curry sauce and fragrant jasmine rice creates our authentic Japanese classic.”
We have also chosen but yet to try the Piri Piri Spatchcock Chicken (made for sharing). I cannot wait to try this one – watch out for our review coming soon!
