After removing it from the microwave, we were all a little wary of Udi's Broccoli & Kale Lasagna ($7 per meal), but with every new bite, tasters were both surprised and impressed. No one felt that the noodles tasted gluten-free, the white sauce was rich and plentiful, and the cheesy layers were light and flavorful. While we would have liked to have seen more kale in the mix, every reviewer appreciated how the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots were chopped instead of pureed and hidden. These vegetables added welcome texture to the dish.
One taster called Udi's Broccoli & Kale Lasagna "much more satisfying" than what she would expect from a frozen meal, gluten-free or not. Another enthusiastic reviewer called this lasagna offering "delicious and indulgent, like all white sauce lasagna should be." Anyone with a weakness for pasta with alfredo sauce will find a lighter, gluten-free alternative in this easy frozen meal; it weighs in at 370 calories and 15 grams of protein.
