Last month I shared a few favorite frozen and prepared foods that help me when I’m pressed for time to prepare a meal. Here are more favorites that I recommend you keep in mind when you are rushing to the grocery store and want something quick to prepare. Stick to a single serving (although it’s tough!), add a vegetable or salad as a side dish and you’ll have a great meal.
Trader Joe’s Spinach and Kale Pie
This has all the robust flavor and flaky texture of traditional Spanikopita. If you’re a fan of that Greek dish you would love this. Neither one of the greens overpowers the other and they did a great job at blending them so you don’t get the toughness of the kale. Very well done.
Trader Giotto’s Kale, Sweet Potato and Butternut Pizza
Trader ‘Giotto’s’ is the Italian product line at Trader Joe’s. Looks can be deceiving but not in the case of this frozen gem. Not only is it a very unique combination of ingredients but it tastes like it is freshly made out of a brick oven. The crust is perfect; great flavor and slightly crisp. The use of pureed sweet potato in place of a traditional sauce is amazing.
Trader Giotto’s Organic Pesto Pizza with Tomatoes and Broccoli
Another slam dunk for a great frozen pizza! Again, the crust is perfect and it is bursting with just the right amount of pesto flavor. Simply done with tomatoes and broccoli, this is another one to have ‘on call’ at home!
LaPasta Pumpkin and Sage Ravioli
This is a Costco product and is made in my local area according to the package so I’m not certain whether you can get this at all Costco’s. However, I’m hopeful that Costco wouldn’t deny others of this wonderful pasta. This cooks in 3 minutes and is such a wonderful blend of simple flavors. The description states that the pumpkin is sweet and it really is. It tastes more like butternut squash than it does pumpkin. I top with a tomato sauce but I’m sure it’s great with light olive oil and garlic also.
