Amy’s Gluten Free, Dairy Free Baked Ziti Review

Amy's Gluten Free, Dairy Free Baked Ziti

We have to admit that we aren’t the biggest fans of Amy’s Light & Lean line. While we’ve found some appealing options in the lineup, these meals usually don’t measure up to Amy’s other dishes. However, if you’re trying to cut back your calorie intake or have very specific dietary concerns, the Gluten Free, Dairy Free Baked Ziti Bowl isn’t a bad choice at all. And technically, it’s not a part of that line at all.

This dish is very different from other Italian dishes on the market. Although it contains a cheese-like substance, it’s completely dairy-free. It’s also free of gluten; the pasta is made using organic rice. Gluten-free pasta can have texture issues, but we thought that this pasta was pretty great. If it didn’t say that it was gluten-free on the box, we never would have guessed.

The soy cheese doesn’t taste anything like real mozzarella, but we liked it anyway. It added some nice flavor and texture to the dish. However, the best part about this meal is definitely the sauce. This is a thick, chunky sauce with big hunks of tomato; it tastes like it was homemade. There’s just a hint of sweetness to it, which probably comes from the organic cane sugar. While we could have done without the peas, they taste fresh and add additional nutrients to the dish.

If you’re trying to find the best pasta that Amy’s has to offer, you’ll be happier with another meal. But if you’re trying to avoid gluten, dairy, or fat, this meal is a pretty solid option. It has more calories than some of the dishes in the Light & Lean line, but it also has a lot of nice perks. Give it a try and see what you think!
