Solution for an Empty Kitchen Table Giveaway {closed}

Congrats Comment #17




I am all about delicious family meals that are fast, easy and nutritious.  I was recently approached by Scotto to try their new Fresco frozen meals.  Seeing as though I am married to a chef I cannot tell you the last time that I ate a frozen meal.  I can honestly say that in the 10 years that we have been together, I have not eaten one.  I jumped at the chance to try two of the entrees.  Why?  "Fresco by Scotto® is a family owned Italian restaurant in New York City. Their concept is simple: to serve delicious, fresh, seasonally inspired food in a warm atmosphere. We've created six Fresco by Scotto® family favorite meals to enjoy at your own dining room table."  Who wouldn't want to try something that sounds so easy and perfect.  I was given my choice of two items and I chose their lasagna with meatball sauce and eggplant and zucchini pie.


Because of my breastfeeding diet (no dairy, remember) I had to wait to review these items.  They were definitely worth the wait.  When I told my husband one night that I had dinner covered, he was scared.  When I told him it was frozen lasagna he grew even more worried.  I assured him that I thought he would enjoy this particular lasagna because it was similar to his mother's because it had mini meatballs in the sauce.  The cooking couldn't have been any easier.  Pull back the layer of plastic film just enough to vent the entree and bake.  How hard is that?  I made fresh garlic bread and a salad to accompany dinner.  My husband and I instantly agreed that the Fresco Lasagna with Meatball Sauce was by far the best frozen lasagna that we had ever tasted.  Dexter even really enjoyed it.  The flavors were great.  The texture was good considering it is a frozen entree.  


The next item that I reviewed was the Eggplant and Zucchini Pie.  I had extremely high expectations for this entree and I was not disappointed one bit!  WOW it was so delicious.  Jason had a bite (he isn't much of a side dish fan) and he said it was "tasty".  I made it to go along side roasted chicken thighs, quinoa and peas.  I loved the pie so much that I skipped the quinoa altogether.  Dexter is a great eater but I didn't give him any of the pie because I didn't want to hear him complain about it before he tried it (he is soooo 3 years old!).  I was not surprised, however, when he leaned over and forked a bite of mine.  He proceeded to eat the entire helping!  That made me so very happy!  I made this for dinner on Monday night and I finished the rest of it last night (Friday).  The portion is large and the flavors are melty and awesome *yes, I can invent the word melty to be used as an adjective!*  Another thing I love is that a whole cup serving (which seemed very satisfying) was only 340 calories.  That is a great deal considering the amount of cheesy goodness in every bite!


The amazing folks at Scotto want to give two Super Savvy Mommy readers an entree of their choice!  You can choose from Penne Gratin, Eggplant and Zucchini Pie, Fusilli with Seasonal Vegetables and Lasagna with Meatball Sauce.  Take a look at their website and let me know which item you would like to win.


I bet you'd love extra ways to win wouldn't you?

I love eggplant. My mother used to grow loads of both eggplant and zuchinni. Which brings me around to emphatically choosing the eggplant and zucchini Pie
