You can taste the quality in both the fettuccine and napoli sauce. I mixed a little seafood through and it was incredible. However, cooking the fettuccine was a NIGHTMARE. Imagine your 6 year old daughter washing her hair with bubblegum and then trying to brush it out?!
I defrosted the packet first and just had to let it boil itself unstuck, that didn't work so I used tongs and a pasta server and while it helped, I got burned by the heat and water.
I thought it was going to end up one big glug for the compost but thankfully it came apart just enough for the family.
Fortunately it was just for me and the kids and as mentioned, flavour was fantastic but something needs to be done about the sticky ball it comes in.
Took 30+ mins to cook from frozen
