Lean Cuisine Tuscan-Style Vegetable Lasagna Review

Lean Cuisine Tuscan-Style Vegetable Lasagna
Microwaved lasagna has its flaws, but it’s a dish we can’t stay away from. Whenever we peruse the freezer aisle for new goodies, we make a beeline for meals with “lasagna” in their names. Naturally, we were eager to try the new Lean Cuisine Tuscan-Style Lasagna. And now that we’ve tasted it, we can say that this meal definitely strengthened our love affair with frozen lasagna.

Like many of the frozen lasagnas we’ve reviewed, this dish had to spend a lot of time in the microwave. It took a total of 7 minutes and 30 seconds to heat this meal up. It’s not the worst cook time we’ve encountered — Trader Joe’s Spinach Lasagna takes 10-12 minutes — but it’s still not a great choice if you’re looking for a super fast meal.

The last Lean Cuisine lasagna we tried had tough, chewy noodles. We’re not sure what the difference was here, but the noodles in this meal turned out perfectly. We could easily cut through the noodles with a fork, and they paired nicely with the cheese, veggies, and tomato sauce.

The sauce isn’t anything special; it’s really just your standard tomato-based sauce. However, the quality of the mushrooms and vegetables is through the roof. There are three different mushrooms here: white, portabella, and crimini. There’s also a nice selection of veggies; the filling includes kale, red pepper, and zucchini. Everything tastes like it could have come from a farmer’s market. This veggie blend is fresh and flavorful, and it takes this microwaved lasagna to the next level.

This isn’t a super cheesy lasagna, by any means, but we didn’t feel like the dish needed more cheese. It works well as-is.

This meal is a little high in sodium, and the pasta sauce definitely uses sugar. Aside from those issues, however, this is a fairly healthy meal. It’s only 310 calories, and it’s substantial enough to be a stand-alone dinner. The 15 grams of protein make this particularly filling; it’s a fantastic option for vegetarian dieters.

We really enjoyed Lean Cuisine Tuscan-Style Vegetable Lasagna, and we’ll probably enjoy it again in the future. Frozen lasagna may not be perfect, but we love it for a good reason. You don’t have to make a full lasagna if you’re in the mood for this classic dish; Lean Cuisine’s single serving lasagnas have you covered!
