New horrors of the upscale freezer section: Tuscan Veggie Bake [Jul. 9th, 2010|11:37 pm]

I don't think they have "veggies" in Tuscany.

I know that "Tuscan" just means "you just paid too much for generic Italian-American glop," parallel to "Southwestern" and "Provençal." I also know that people want to feel that they are eating light even when eating hyper-processed poison from the freezer case.

But nobody wants to eat anything called a "veggie bake," even if it's artisanal, Szechwan, uncured, extra-virgin, and triple-distilled.

I tried this once. It seriously must contain like 90% sodium. It's pretty bad.

I haven't tried this,but I do adore Kashi's Mediterranean Pizza. The crust is really thin and crunchy,and the veggies always taste fresh.I tried one of their pasta things once though,and I wasn't impressed.
