When I was growing up my father would make TV dinners for us anytime my mother would work late at night. I remember all of us sitting on the sofa in front of the TV with our TV trays in front of us and being so excited to eat the dessert first.
Thankfully frozen dinners have come a long way since the 80s and as a busy mom who makes feeding her family healthy clean meals a priority, I was so excited to check out skinnypasta™ gluten-free frozen entrees by Gabriella’s Kitchen. Seriously, everyone needs a easy button for those days where you don’t know what’s up or down, or, cough, when your husband has to cook.

Now, I have the PICKIEST OF EATERS in my house and I had no idea what they would think of the meals. I made the gabbypasta™ SUPERFOOD TEFF Macaroni & Cheese, skinnypasta™ GLUTEN FREE Roasted Vegetable Lasagna and skinnypasta™ GLUTEN FREE 3-Cheese Spinach Ravioli.
I did not tell them they were frozen dinners and served them in bowls.
I swear I put them on the table, walked away and the bowls were half empty and they were already asking for more by the time I got back.
I then asked them to rank them in order of favorites. This is what each said.
Mr. Bejelly: 1st Lasagna, 2nd Ravioli, 3rd Macaroni and Cheese
Little: 1st Lasagna, 2nd Macaroni and Cheese, 3rd Ravioli
My family loved these meals and the best part is that they are now carried in Safeway stores in Portland! I have a store 1 mile away so I know where I am going to grab them when I just do not have the umph to make dinner from scratch. Keep reading to see how you can win a fun skinnypasta™ package.
