18th Hello Fresh Meal Kit Review & $40 Coupon
This is a review of our 18th delivery from a weekly food subscription box called Hello Fresh. This week we gave all three recipe four out of five stars. Calories ranged from 560 to 840 and preparation time ranged from five minutes to forty-five minutes. Actual preparation time ranged from five minutes to fifty-five minutes. This one costs $9.99 per serving for two people and shipping is free. You can chose 2, 3 or 4 recipes per week. The family plan is $8.74 per serving and you can chose two or three recipes per week for four people.
Sausage Pasta Dinner & Shallot Zucchini Risotto Lunch
We both gave this recipe four out of five stars. It was really delicious and I appreciated that they sent us Italian pasta and high quality sausage. This recipe is a new concept for them and they offer one of them each week. They offer two meals from one recipe and it costs only $7 for the second set of two servings! You cook everything for both meals at one time, so that it only takes five minutes to make the 2nd recipe for lunch the next day. You have the option of not cooking the ingredients that aren't shared in the lunch recipe until lunchtime. I'm not showing a picture for the 2nd recipe because we decided to have it for dinner instead and go low carb by skipping the rice. It looked just like the above photo, but without the pasta. It was plenty of food even without the rice. Pasta is in the dinner dish and rice is in the lunch dish. Most of the ingredients are the same with a few changes to make it a bit different. The sweet Italian chicken sausage was scrumptious! Hubby complained that it was chicken sausage, but changed his tune when he tasted how delicious it was. The fresh tarragon and parmesan cheese were lovely additions. The dinner recipe took fifty-five minutes to prepare and the recipe card states forty-five minutes. The dinner was a very generous portion with pasta leftovers. The lunch recipe had just as much sausage, they sent us eight links total. The 2nd package wouldn't fit on the cutting board for the photo, so it's not shown in the photo above. The risotto lunch has 800 calories and the pasta dinner has 840 calories.
Lobster Ravioli & Shrimp
This is the 2nd time I've purchased this meal kit. Last time was back in September. I gave it five out of five stars when Hubby cooked it and I gave it four stars this time since I cooked it. Hubby is a better cook than I am. I probably didn't use as much butter as he did the first time. It comes in at only 600 calories yet it tastes like many more. Again, the use of fresh tarragon is wonderful. It's a very generous portion with lots of grape tomatoes left over. There were so many, I didn't use them all in the recipe. My preparation time was forty minutes, Hubby took thirty-three minutes and the recipe card states thirty-five minutes.
Mushroom Gravy Chicken
We gave this recipe four out of five stars. Oh my, the mushroom gravy was scrumptious! I'm not usually a fan of that type of gravy, but purchased it for Hubby who does. I don't like this type of couscous, Israeli, so I ate very little of it. I prefer yellow couscous. With the addition of a salad, the couscous wasn't necessary, it was filling enough. Amazingly, the dressing made simply with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper was very tasty on the arugula. It took fifty minutes to prepare while the recipe card states forty minutes. It was a healthy portion with only 560 calories and leftover couscous.
