Heating Directions

Since there is no cooking involved, here are the heating instructions straight from the packaging:

  1. Remove sleeve and peel corner of film to vent.

  2. Microwave for 2 minutes (using 1100 watt microwave).

  3. Let stand for 2 minutes.

  4. Our chefs suggest plating your meal before enjoying (personal preference).

If you don’t have a 1100 watt microwave and know your current microwave’s wattage, check out this microwave calculator!

Impressions & Taste

Upon removing the sleeve, it doesn’t look very appetizing. After heating and stirring it together, it looks much more enticing. There’s plenty of sausage as well!

Digging in, there are some satisfying cheese pulls. The pesto sauce is prominent and flavorful but isn’t too thick (which may or may not be a good thing). There are also a few pieces of broccoli that provide a nice crunch.

Onto the cauliflower shells, they’re soft and delicate but still contain a ton of flavor. Each shell captures a good amount of pesto sauce. Meanwhile, the sausage is bursting with meaty flavors that work insanely well with the other elements.

Verdict and Rating

Overall, Freshly’s Sausage & Cauliflower Shells are very tasty for a microwavable meal. It has a decent amount of veggies but plenty of sausage. I wish there were more veggies considering it mentioned 2 cups of veggies. Otherwise, this is well worth trying!
