Gourmet Skillet Meals and a Giveaway

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Stouffer's.



I was recently asked to review two varieties of the new Stouffer's Sautes for Two products - Grilled Chicken & Asiago Tortellini and Steak Gorgonzola. Both were good but I am not a huge gorgonzola cheese fan, so I much preferred the Grilled Chicken & Asiago Tortellini over the Steak Gorgonzola.
The meal came together in less than 15 minutes, which is awesome because when I come home from a long day of work, the last thing I want to do is cook! I have to feed the my baby girl, bathe her, and then put her to bed. By the time that's said and done, it's already 8:30pm and I am wiped out! Having this meal on hand was great because my husband and I were able to enjoy a special meal together without leaving the house. We'd love to do date nights more often, but with a toddler, that's often hard to do! (I'm sure the other parents out there can relate to what I'm saying!)

I'll talk about the Grilled Chicken & Asiago Tortellini because that one was my favorite. The cheese filled pasta was delicious. The creamy alfredo sauce that accompanied it was rich and creamy but not too heavy. There was quite a bit of spinach in the dish (yum!) and just the right amount of chicken, too. There weren't a lot of mushrooms in it, but that was fine with me because I don't like mushrooms. The package came with 14 pieces of tortellini, so each serving included 7. At first I thought that the serving size looked a bit small, but after eating dinner I felt like the portion size was just right. I think in general a lot of us have eyes that are bigger than our stomaches and we tend to over eat, so having a package that only includes two servings is perfect for portion control! Eaten alone, the portion size is arguably on the smaller side, but paired with a nice salad and some dessert, it ends up being a good size.
Because they use premium ingredients like asiago cheese, prime rib steak, and roasted red peppers, the Stouffer's Sautes for Two don't feel like your typical frozen dinner. Since I don't cook every night during the work week, having something like this on hand was a great way for my husband and I to enjoy what felt like a gourmet home cooked meal without all the hassle of having to prep it. There are several other varieties, and I'm looking forward to trying the Cajun-Style Shrimp Alfredo, Ginger Soy Shrimp, and Honey Citrus Chicken.

  3. Ordinary nights are extraordinary when you're aware of what's actually happening. Children are growing in front of you, your husband and you are growing old together - it's everything you've ever wanted - happening every day!

  21. An ordinary night turns extraordinary when I plan a nice dinner, cook it correctly, also serve a nice dessert and some wine. A nice DVD is good too. Listening to how his day went and being 100% attentive. All of that combined makes for a magical night.

    Thanks!

I love stouffers especially for the 2 of us.With the economy the way it is sometimes its cheaper and easier to use Stouffers for a special time. We also had Game night back in the 90's which meant NO tv and just fun games our daughter loved this and so did her friends

  38. Both of us are a bit of heath freaks, especially when it comes to food, so we spend quality time by cooking together. Our work hours are often long and unpredictable, but we still make it a point to cook together, especially on weekends, when we often prepare our meals for the week.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. We talk about special times in our lives, like trips we want to take or special trips we've taken. We love to talk about our trip to the Caribbean and what we want to do 'next time'. Once in a lifetime trip that was super romantic and always brings a smile to our faces. Sharing memories is a perfect way to spend an evening and stir-up some of the romantic times.

  44. My older kids are living with us temporarily (ages 30 and 24) and let me tell you, they are worse for romance than little ones cause they stay up and are not as easily entertained by a stupid dvd. So I tell them to beat it, light candles and open a bottle of our favorite wine.

  146. Actually sitting down together at the table to eat is making a regular night special, since it takes real planning to be home together at the same time!

  150. A special night is when we can crawl in bed and snuggle before 11pm and have some alone time. Doesn't matter if we are watching a movie or just talking. Those moments together make it special.

  154. We make meals special by sitting at the table and talking about our day. We have two young children so it is hard to have a romantic meal at home.

  159. In order to make ordinary nights extraordinary, I like to add special touches to dinner. Little things like a great loaf of bread, turning off the tv, phones, etc., and perhaps putting on some music. It's all in the details!

  180. dinner on the patio with the nicest plates, some chilled wine and a pretty table. Timing dinner for sunset . Having Stouffer's for an entree - -we love the stuffed peppers and lasagna-gives me some time to make a special salad and a homemade dessert, too.

  181. We put the kids in bed a tiny bit early and eat our dinner later. We usually add cocktails or wine and either an appetizer or dessert. We then snuggle on the couch and watch a movie.

  182. To make a meal special, in warm seasons, we cook outside on the grill and eat after dark with candles for light. With a light breeze and the night sounds for music, it's special.

  191. We make it special by not allowing any electronic devices at the table. No blackberrys, iphones, tv or laptop allowed at the dinner table. That way, we can actually have a conversation without distractions.
