lasagna

Okay so I still have those 3 home made pizza’s in the freezer. Last week we went out for Little Caesar’s as a treat. I think on Wed. What I like most about those pizza’s is not the thought of having pizza in the freezer. It is having something that is done a bit healthier, made from scratch. I control all the ingredients. So there is not a long list of ingredients made in a laboratory somewhere.

Same thing with lasagna. Yeah it would be easier to just spend $11.00 and pick up a Stouffer’s 96 ozer from the store. But it is nice knowing exactly what you are eating.

Stouffer’s lasagna ingredient list:

Ingredients
WATER, COOKED LASAGNA (WATER, SEMOLINA WHEAT FLOUR), COTTAGE, PART SKIM MOZZARELLA AND PARMESAN CHEESES (MILK INGREDIENTS, BACTERIAL CULTURES, SALT, MICROBIAL ENZYMES, LIPASE, CELLULOSE), TOMATO PASTE, COOKED GROUND BEEF, TEXTURED SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, MODIFIED CORN STARCH, SALT, WHEAT FLOUR, DEHYDRATED ONIONS, SUGAR, SPICES, AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT, MILK INGREDIENTS, GARLIC POWDER, COLOUR, FLAVOURS (SOY SAUCE [WATER, SOYBEANS, WHEAT, SALT], AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT, SOY OIL, FLAVOUR).

Okay so not as bad as some food list’ I see, but still. I italicized some of the more questionable ingredients. Like, why do we need soy sauce in an Italian dish? Milk ingredients? Is that in addition to the mozzarella? If so, then what? I don’t see ricotta or cottage cheese even listed. We also need colour? Really. I thought lasagna had enough color on it’s own. AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT, MODIFIED CORN STARCH.

I don’t see yeast listed on anything I put in yesterday. Now I do see modified food starch listed on the container of ricotta I bought. I will have to check the other brands of ricotta at the store but I think they all have something. Grr….

Okay but you get the picture. There is not as many questionable ingredients when you make it yourself. I couldn’t google frozen pizza ingredients quick enough but just take my word for it. There is alot of extra stuff in there and most of them have transfat to boot! I will be back right back with my adventure in home made lasagna.
