After my post about becoming a born-again Glutinoian, I'm sure you can imagine the glee I felt when I gazed upon three new gluten-free frozen meals in the health food aisle at Martins, all made by none other than Glutino!
I took home two meals; Duo Mushroom Penne and Penne Alfredo. Aaaaaaand... not quite so gleeful. I think Glutino forgot to consult with Amy's regarding "how to make a frozen meal that doesn't melt into 50% water." Bummer. I think the meals definitely have potential, but you have to straaaaaaaaain the liquid out for a good coupla minutes before you can get down to the "meal" part, and that's no good.
Additionally, the pasta is a bit too al dente for my taste. But that could just be me. (But, probably not.)
Glutino, thank you for trying, but I hope there's a second edition to this potential bestseller.
Oh, I nearly forgot: there's also a Glutino Pad Thai with Chicken in my freezer, waiting to be judged. I find it hard to believe anyone can fuck up Pad Thai, so I'm setting my hopes high... I'll let you know when I try it!
