Italian Sausage Lasagna - Deal of the Day Review

Mama mia, is this a tasty Italian Deal of the Day! I haven't tried frozen fare by Devour, but if it's anything like their Italian Sausage Lasagna, I'll be on the lookout for more of their frozen entrees.

This is a simple but loaded Lasagna, and it's a good amount at 12.5 ounces. While the plastic bowl is a small rectangle, this is a thick Lasagna with 3 or 4 sheets of pasta.

The ricotta and mozzarella flavors shine with each hefty forkful. The ingredients list mentions sheep's-milk romano, too.

The pasta is tender but not overcooked, like a lot of frozen Italian pasta meals. And each layer has a thick film of ricotta cheese. Plus, it would be a delish Lasagna even without Italian sausage.

The sausage is in tiny crumbles, but still very pungent with fennel seed flavor you expect in typical Italian sausage. At least you get many sausage pieces, even if they are minuscule. The meat pellet texture is rough ground. It's very tasty and goes well with the mix of cheeses and sauce.

A rich herb infused tomato sauce holds it all together. There is plenty, just the way I like it. The fine print lists red bell pepper and of course garlic. It is a well balanced, rich sauce.

And the ingredient list is a long one, but most of the ingredients are at least recognizable. And it is easy to microwave since everything is swimming in sauce.

So on the 99 Cent Chef's Cheap$kate Dining Scale of 1 to 9, 9 being best, I give this Deal of the Day, Devour Italian Sausage Lasagna an almost perfect 8!

The cheap$kate Lasagna is highly recommended and is well worth 99.99 cents from my local 99c only Store. I would even pay a buck or two more for such a tasty meal. And almost any Italian Mama would be proud to serve this Lasagna -- which is good to the last bite.
