I received Michael Angelo’s products in order to facilitate my review. All words and opinions are my own.
Italian food has always been one of my favorite cuisines. Growing up, my Mom would frequently make spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, complete with her own homemade pasta sauce. The sauce is so good that my brother and his now-wife actually requested it as their rehearsal dinner meal.
My Gram also made Italian meals special, as she often made her own fresh pasta. I remember seeing those little strips of goodness hanging on the machine, ready to be tossed into the boiling water. You’d think my family is Italian, but we’re not; we just enjoy good food.
I often make Italian meals for my own family. Lasagna and spaghetti with my own homemade spaghetti sauce recipe are two of the most frequent, but I’m made Chicken Piccata, antipasto salad, Chicken Parmesan, and other dishes, too.
One day while shopping at Sam’s Club, I noticed a new arrival. Michael Angelo’s Chicken Piccata was in the freezer case. We hadn’t had Chicken Piccata in awhile and it sounded good to me at the moment, so I picked up a box for us to try. My husband, who doesn’t normally like chicken that’s part of a frozen meal because it can be rubbery, gave this a thumb’s up – and I had to agree. It was good!
The only down side was that while it came packaged in two serving trays, we still had a lot left over after each meal. But then we found out that they also make individual frozen meals. I hadn’t noticed them before but, sure enough, there they were in the freezer case at Kroger. Their website shows quite a few more options than I’ve run across but we did try the Spaghetti & Meatballs, Meat Lasagna, and Chicken Parmesan, and all three were really good.
Right now you can also enter the Taste Your Way to Italy Sweepstakes. Winners will stay in a private villa with the Michael Angelo’s family, and will tour the region throughout the trip, including an exclusive event at Castello Banfi. Enter quickly, though; sweepstakes ends on November 24th.
