Aldi sells some large, deluxe frozen lasagnas occasionally, and sometimes Aldi even sells lasagna noodles if you want to make the dish from scratch, but if you can’t find those in your local store, you can pretty much count on finding the smaller Bremer Everyday Frozen Lasagna with Meat Sauce any time.
This 28-oz. lasagna sold for $2.69 at the time of publication. (It’s impressively cheap, similar to Aldi’s Salisbury steak dinner.) The lasagna box describes it as “freshly made pasta layered between rich meat sauce and topped with real mozzarella cheese.”
It contains just four servings (I told you it was on the small side). Each serving contains 220 calories, 4 grams of saturated fat (20% of your daily value), 800 mg of sodium (33% DV), and 6 grams of sugars.
It contains wheat, milk, and soy.
The lasagna should be kept frozen until ready to use, and it should not be refrozen.
You have two ways to prepare the Bremer lasagna: conventional oven (recommended) or microwave oven.
To prepare in a conventional oven, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Remove the heat-safe tray from the carton, and remove the film from the tray. (The film is a bit annoying to remove because it tears into multiple pieces, and it’s difficult to remove it from the edges of the tray.) Place on a cooking sheet in the center of the oven. Cook for 45-50 minutes or until fully baked. Carefully remove cooking sheet from the oven with oven mitts and let the lasagna stand for 2 minutes. Check that the lasagna is cooked thoroughly; internal temperature needs to reach 165 degrees as measured by a food thermometer in several spots.
I opted to bake my lasagna in the oven, and it took about 50 minutes to get it up to 165 degrees.
To prepare in a microwave, the box recommends cooking only one meal at a time. First, remove the heat-safe tray from the carton and place the tray on a microwave-safe plate. Do not remove the film. Microwave on high power (100% power) for 10 minutes. Carefully peel off the film cover, rotate the tray 1/2 a turn, and microwave on high for 7-8 minutes or until fully cooked. Let stand for 2 minutes. Using oven mitts, carefully remove the microwave-safe plate with the lasagna tray from the microwave. Use a food thermometer to check that the product is cooked thoroughly; internal temperature should reach 165 degrees as measured by a food thermometer in several spots.
Remember to recycle the box after you prepare this lasagna.
My family enjoyed this lasagna. It tastes like your typical frozen lasagna entree; it’s not the same as homemade lasagna, but it’s still really good. It’s got plenty of cheese and sauce, with small bits of meat throughout.
Also, because this lasagna is small, with only four servings, my family did not fall into the trap of eating too much, which often happens when we have lasagna because it’s so good. The serving sizes were generous enough that we didn’t feel too deprived.
Aldi’s Regular Buy frozen Bremer Everyday Lasagna with Meat Sauce is a cheap, tasty dinner. It’s easy to heat up in less than an hour. It only contains four (reasonably sized) servings, so it will not feed a large crowd, but if you’re trying to not overeat (an easy thing to do when lasagna is on the menu), this might be the lasagna for you. It tastes like a lot of other frozen lasagnas I’ve had; it’s good, although clearly not the same as homemade. At $2.69, this lasagna also makes for a thrifty meal. Serve with a salad and you’ll have a complete meal for your family for less than $5.
ExcelPhillent, but not enough cheese
I have eaten a variety of frozen lazagna. This is by far the worst! Absolutely flavorless! Bland sauce scant amount of mozzarella. Tray was barely half full and cooked up with layers misaligned and mushed up. I have rarely been disappointed with Aldi products…but this definitely disappointed.
I agree…I will NEVER buy this again…it is $8.68 now and mostly just sauce…I usually make lasagna home made, and can do it cheaper than the sauce just cost me, and at least twice the size!! I thought I’d try it, for 2 reasons…the first being that I have NEVER been disappointed by a product from Aldi, and I have shopped there for many many years!! 2nd reason is that I’m fighting cancer, and have physical issues which effect my ability to do the things I used to love doing, ie. cooking…I wouldn’t recommend this if it was the ONLY thing left to eat!!
When baking it in the oven, do you take out the lasagna from the plastic tray or just the box?
You remove the tray from the box and bake it in the tray.
Lasagna noodle a bit thick & would do well with more cheese. Too much salt to my liking. The sauce taste like tomato soup and no meat favoring.
If more cheese is added, really improve on the sauce and balance the salt, I think Bremer would a great product.
Weird tasting sauce, ours didn’t have cheese and it tasted like you are eating just salt black pepper. Worst frozen lasagna ever.
My family loves this lasagna but I always add a half of a bottle of Aldis marinara sauce, Italian seasoning, and mozzarella cheese to two trays of lasagna, because I’m feeding a family of 6. All of my additions to the lasagna come from Aldis and are extremely cheap. I normally have them stocked in the pantry so I use them to pep up the lasagna some.
I wasn’t too pleased with the lasagna with meat sauce ;it did not look like the image on the package. There wasn’t hardly enough meat in the meat sauce and it was very skimpy with the mozzarella cheese. I won’t buy it again.
Sorry we won’t buy it again. All I can taste is black pepper. None of us liked it. No wonder is so cheap.
Totally disappointed with the Bremer Frozen Lasagna. It is CHEAP, which will be appealing to some like it was to me. Noodles were doughy and the spaghetti bland sauce lacked cheese and meat. I will never buy it again.
The reason I will never again buy Bremer Everyday Lasagna with Meat Sauce is the thickeners. You will never find guar gum, locust bean gum, carageenan, and/or corn starch in minimally decent Italian cooking. These cost-saving texturizers/thickeners are far too prominent, and result in a somewhat slimy mouth feel. I’d pay an extra 50¢ or more to have these removed and replaced with tomato paste.
Smells really processed. Gross.
DONT DO IT This stuff is GARBAGE. This truly is trash. Even Chef Boyardee is rolling over in his grave. Just get spaghetti-os. At least they don’t pretend to be edible. I never review anything , but I wanted to go out of my way to save you from this Trash lasagna..
All these comments on here are by people that think they are to classy to buy anything from aldi. Sprinker on a little cheese and black pepper ater cooking for 10 minutes in the microwave and cook 4 more minutes. This stuff is fantastic and I could eat this 3 times a week!
I just had two servings(1/4 of the tray) and I was happy with it. I would buy it again!
I have frequently purchased this lasagna and for the price, it’s pretty good.. What do you expect for a lasagna this size for the cheap price? An Italian restaurant style lasagna? If that if your expectations, then this lasagna is not for you. But if you want a decently sized lasagna that is filling and pretty tasty for cheap, this is the one to get.
