Frozen Lasagnas From Dallas Based Veroli Foods

9 Mar

Dallas Based Veroli foods, founded by first generation Canadian-Italian Lidia Caschera, has added new frozen entrees to its line of products.

Veroli products are entirely natural and contain no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, or added sugars.  Foodies will be glad to know that these lasagnas are prepared in a way consistent with the tastes of the Lazio region of Italy (where Lidia’s family is from), and thus are lighter fare than your typical grocery store frozen lasagna (no excessive cheese or large chunks of ground beef).  Veroli manages to achieve a truly al dente pasta in these frozen lasagnas, unlike the popular major competitors whose pasta is often gummy.

Following the directions on the box, I had a slight issue with the wateriness of the sauce making the lasagna too runny on my first try with lasagna with meat sauce.  Leaving it in the oven 5 or 10 more minutes longer than the box prescribed time helped that issue when I tried the three cheese lasagna.

The two types of lasagnas, meat sauce and three cheese, are available at local Central Market locations (soon to be at Whole Foods).

    Donna,

    I will give these a go if I am by a Central Market or Whole Foods soon. Another Itlian Dallas-based comapy is Blumetti’s which has a wonderful marinara sauce. You can find them at Whole Foods, Central Market or the Super Wal-Mart in Highland Village.

    Donna, I’ll definitely give these and Soulslinger’s rec a try the next time I make a grocery run. Since I’m not getting out to eat near as much as I used to, good frozen food options are a Godsend. Many thanks!
    One other option for anyone in East Dallas (but worth the drive for anyone else) is the frozen lazagna from Jimmy’s (or any of their frozen pasta dishes for that matter).

    Shane and Michael, I would love to hear your thoughts on the Veroli lasagnas. They’re very different that what I was used to in frozen lasagnas (Stouffer’s) because they were less cheesey and less meaty, but I liked it that way (especially the consistency of the 3 cheese lasagna). I’d like to see what your thoughts are.
