When I looked at the menu for tonight, I really wanted to know what in the world spaghetti pie was. I imagined spaghetti, with sauce, in a pie crust. That didn’t sound very good. I was very happy that there was no pie crust when I opened the package.
It’s just spaghetti!
I think Diet-To-Go may have a pie obsession. Their “spaghetti pie” was spaghetti in tomato sauce with melted cheese. It was fabulous but it wasn’t pie. In my opinion, pie requires some sort of shell or crust. If it had a pot pie-type crust on top of or under the spaghetti, that would be different. That would be spaghetti pie. No, cheese does not count as a crust, no matter how crunchy it is. And, no, this cheese wasn’t crunchy anyway. It was wonderfully melty.
Since when do I like cauliflower?
I’ve never been a huge fan of cauliflower. It’s not that I hate it. On the contrary, I don’t have any opinion about the vegetable. I just prefer broccoli. With that said, this cauliflower was quite tasty. It heated up slightly faster than the pasta so I did take it out of the microwave first. It didn’t even get cold while I waited for the pasta to finish. I would definitely eat this again.
Here is where Diet-To-Go gets a little shady on their menu. They have “parmesan cheese” listed as one of the foods. The cheese is on top of the spaghetti. It’s not separate. I don’t think it should be listed separately. It should be listed as “spaghetti with tomato sauce and cheese.” Also, these sesame breadsticks? You get two fairly tiny crunchy breadsticks covered in sesame seeds. I would rather have one larger (and softer) breadstick over the two tiny ones.
Even with those super tiny flaws, I did love this meal. It is only Day 2 and all three meals today were awesome, even though I couldn’t finish breakfast. I am very excited to see what tomorrow’s meals hold in store. I hope they are just as delicious!
