Tasty Madness

A Taste of Italy, From a Box

I have always been a Spagettio’s girl, and although my brother used to eat cans upon cans of Chef Boyardee like it was nobody’s business, it has only been recently that I have realized the full variety of the Chef Boyardee brand. Aside from their multitude of canned concoctions, the company offers boxed “Kits,” including Spaghetti and Meatballs Kit, Lasagna Kit and Pizza Kit.

So Far I have only tried the Pizza Kit. It is amazing. It makes you feel like you are actually cooking, when really you just had to mix their dough with water and spread it around a pan, pour on their sauce, and sprinkle their cheese. Fifteen minutes later, presto, you look like you just made a home-made pizza, and it tastes really great too!

On a side note, as much criticism as Chef Boyardee takes for claiming to taste exactly like pasta from Italy, I am sorry to tell all of you non-believers, but it really does!

Chef Boyardee Pizza kits make it simple to create a great meal for family and friends. It’s a really easy idea for dinners, especially if you arent so great at cooking but want to show off to your friends. The kits come in 3 flavors too: cheese, two cheese, and pepperoni. 🙂 yummy!!

Spaghetti-Os and Chef Boyardee pizza kits: two icons from my 1970s youth!

Note that Campbell changed Spaghetti-O’s recipe somewhere along the way and they taste awful now. They were much better in the ’70s. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re using corn syrup in place of sugar now, like all the other big food conglomerates. Yuck.

The Chef Boyardee pizza kit was never “great” but it was fun and reasonably tasty. I haven’t eaten one in ages so i can’t vouch for its present-day quality.
