So my delivery from Pasta Evangelists arrived today. Pictures follow.
My first reaction was “where are the cooking instructions?” But each meal is colour coded with a dot, and in the enclosed booklet, full details are given – a lengthy description, ingredients and cooking instructions.
The portion sizes look reasonable for single portions, which is what these are. As a result, this could work out expensive – I got this box at 50% off, but the full prices are £7-11 per portion (most are around £8). On the other hand, the supermarket chill cabinet versions of this kind of thing would be half of that, and mass-produced; so the issue will be the quality of this pasta and what it tastes like.
I was a little taken aback by the “use within 2 days of delivery” printed on the box and menu, which messes my meal planning for this week, and makes me glad I only ordered two meals. On the other hand, they do say that you can freeze the dishes on receipt.
I’m going to be trying “Lamb & Rosemary Lasagne” tonight, and will update with details of what I think of it.
This link will give you an introductory offer for just 3 quid, and it will also give me store credit.
EDIT: “Pappardelle With Wild Boar Ragu” (see comment below)
