Devour Italian Sausage Lasagna Review

Devour Italian Sausage Lasagna

It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Devour’s frozen food. Their macaroni dishes are especially divine, so be sure to check those out. But today we’re not trying another mac and cheese; instead we’re diving into Devour’s Italian Sausage Lasagna. This is a a bit more traditional than Devour’s Lasagna Alfredo with Bacon & Sausage, but it’s quite good.

Now, we should warn you that this frozen meal has a particularly long cook time. You’ll need to microwave for four minutes, then remove the film and microwave for four more. That’s a total of eight minutes of microwave time, plus all the time you’ll have to let it cool afterward, which is a good five minutes or so — it comes out of the microwave piping hot. So this might not be a dish you’ll want to reach for when you’re extremely hungry.

But on the other hand, it’s a hearty meal, and you’ll feel its weight when you pull it out of the freezer at your local grocery store. It’s also got 600 calories (200 from fat), so it isn’t exactly a snack or a diet food.

But either way, this lasagna is absolutely worth the wait.

The sauce isn’t as sweet as, say, Lean Cuisine’s. While we typically prefer sweeter red sauces, this one is a good match for the sausage and an even better match for the ricotta cheese. This marinara sauce is also nice and thick — you won’t find a soupy mess at the bottom of the tray when you’re done eating, like some of the lesser lasagna dishes we’ve tried.

The sausage is shaped into balls, but their not quite as big as what you’d find on a pizza. They have a rich, spicy flavor to them — in fact, we found our sinuses clearing out a bit as we ate. The spiciness didn’t hit right away, but it’s definitely there.

The proverbial icing on this Italian cake is the mozzarella cheese. It tastes incredible, and has that perfectly stretchy consistency that every good lasagna dreams of.

Now, the one component that didn’t quite live up to our high expectations was the pasta. The ruffled edges were a bit rubbery. While the middles were fine, we found the edges to be a little off-putting. It’s not the worst thing in the world, but it definitely prevents this dish from reaching its true potential.

Even without the pasta issue, we prefer the Alfredo Lasagna with Bacon & Sausage to this frozen meal. But that doesn’t mean this isn’t good. In fact, Devour’s Italian Sausage Lasagna is one of the best frozen lasagnas out there.
