ASDA Slimzone Sausage & Boston Bean Bake

This from-frozen ready meal packs in a mighty 3 of your 5 a day of vegetables. I didn’t know that when I bought it, but I am very pleasantly surprised! What more nutrition could a hungry student need?

Oh but there must be a downside! Are they vegan sausages or something? *checks the packet*

89% pork!! This is too good to be true. Surely?


The sausages are the worst sausages I think I’ve ever eaten in my life. Think of the stalest piece of cut-price bread you’ve ever chowed down on, wrap it in a bit of cling film and you’ve got a pretty good approximation of these sausages. Worse still, there are three of them.

The Boston beans are actually quite nice with a smokey BBQ permeation, although they err a little too much on the sweet side towards the end of the meal.

This could have been such a winner with nutritional accolades rarely seen in microwave meals. But I just wouldn’t want to ever eat it again if it means facing those sausages. It has to lose two stars for that, and another one for the numerous other downsides which include a moderate price and a 12 minute cooking time.
