BEST FROZEN MEALS
They can’t beat freshly cooked dishes, but these will give you tasty nosh, pronto. The Simply Her team tasted these TV dinners to find the ones worth stocking up on.
1 Gourmet Pizza Al Fungi $9.90, from Fairprice Finest We liked that the crispy thincrust pizza came with a creambased sauce instead of tomato – which complemented the gooey mozzarella and sliced mushroom topping.
2 Marks & Spencer Lochmuir Salmon Fillets with Watercress Sauce $17.90, from Marks & Spencer Some of us thought the pair of Scottish salmon fillets tasted slightly fishy, but the generous portion of well-seasoned watercress sauce rescued it.
3 Gastronomic! Beef Lasagne $8.80, from Fairprice Finest This emerged from the microwave with the sauce bubbling and an aroma of sauteed beef. It comes with disposable cutlery for zero washing up.
4 Nissin Spa Oh Premium Genovese $7.35, from Isetan Scotts This Japanese-Italian fusion has coils of spaghetti stained with light pesto cream sauce and a smattering of shrimp – so yummy that all went back for seconds.
5 Lean Cuisine Herb Roasted Chicken $12.15, from Jasons The Gourmet Grocer The star was the chicken, which was juicy and had a nice bite. The savoury herb cream sauce prevented the broccoli florets and roasted potatoes from drying up.
6 Marks & Spencer Macaroni Cheese $8.90, from Marks & Spencer The epitome of comfort food in a microwaveable container, this had surprisingly al dente tube pasta in a rich, molten cheese sauce. Complete the dish by adding your own shredded ham.
