One of the things I miss is the convenience of frozen meals. I know they’re typically not the best nutritionally, and they often cost a lot, but on days when you just don’t feel like cooking they’re better than fast food. But they’re filled with additives that contain gluten.
While gluten-free frozen meals do exist, you can’t just run into any supermarket and pick one up. They’re usually found at specialty shops, like Portions in Guelph.
On a recent trip in there, I decided to try a frozen lasagna from Caesar’s Pasta. On the night I ate it, I was exhausted from a long day at work and was so thankful to have a meal in the freezer that I could just pop into the microwave.
As far as frozen lasagna goes, this was really no different. The pasta was tender, the tomato sauce was tasty enough, and there was lots of ricotta cheese. It was pretty much what you’d expect from a frozen meal, and there was nothing about it that screamed “THIS IS GLUTEN FREE!”
I think next time I’m at Portions I’ll pick up a few more to stash in my freezer.
