Lean Cuisine Butternut Squash Lasagna Review

Lean Cuisine Butternut Squash Lasagna

If you’re a longtime Freezer Meal Frenzy reader, you know we love frozen lasagna. Whenever we find a new grocery store to peruse, Lasagna is one of the first things we look for in the freezer aisle — and this strategy rarely lets us down. So when we found the new Lean Cuisine Butternut Squash Lasagna, part of the Origins line, we knew we had to check it out.

Like many frozen lasagnas, it takes a while to heat this dish up. This Lean Cuisine lasagna spent more than 7 minutes in the microwave, and it took even longer for it to cool down. If you’re in a rush, you might be better off with a faster frozen meal.

While we understand that frozen lasagnas take a while to heat, it seems like all that microwaving isn’t great for the noodles. The cooked organic pasta was pretty chewy; our teeth actually had a tough time cutting through the noodles. The pasta tasted just fine, but we weren’t crazy about the texture.

Thankfully, the filling mostly makes up for the sub-par lasagna noodles. The organic butternut squash is slightly sweet and delightfully creamy. When it’s combined with the ricotta and goat cheese, it tastes absolutely decadent. The spinach is tender, but isn’t slimy, and the breadcrumbs add a little bit of crispiness to the meal.

There are definitely better frozen lasagnas out there, even if you’re a big fan of butternut squash. That said, we wouldn’t call Lean Cuisine Butternut Squash Lasagna a total dud. The chewy noodles aren’t enough to ruin the phenomenal filling, and 340 calories isn’t bad for a massive serving of lasagna. If you’re willing to chew through tough noodles, you might want to give this meal a try.
