Moving on from posting my first recipe from the Gousto meal subscription box, I’m back with my second review. As I mentioned in my last post, the range of meals differ according to your lifestyle i.e. low calorie, vegetarian or like this one, quick & easy.
Whilst pasta dishes are my go-to when I want to make a filling, yet veg-packed meal, I decided to choose a pasta recipe to expand my repertoire. So, I went with the Sicilian Chicken Linguine.
The ingredients appeared simple enough, not too much technique required and it’s not very often that I make lemon-based dishes.
This recipe was a lot easier to follow – plus I like the fact that the chicken arrived pre-diced so I could pop it straight into the frying pan, along with the stock cube and a pinch of salt and pepper. Similarly to the Spiced Pork Tenderloin recipe, the dish was packed with flavour and I’m looking forward to re-creating this one again soon.
Involving less prep and therefore less kitchen stress, I personally would say if you’re pushed for time or don’t want to dedicate your evening to cooking, the quick and easy meals are the way forward.
However, that said, I loved the variety across the 22 meals and I’ve defo been pushed outside my comfort zone to try new recipes and mix mealtimes up a little.
Whilst the cost of the box for just 2 meals for 2 people came in at just over half of the cost of my weekly shop; including alcohol and toiletries, it’s an expensive way to prep. But, if you’re someone who’s on the go and loves the convenience of knowing exactly what you’re making each night, I can really see the appeal.
