Review of On-Cor Family Size Lasagna with Meat Sauce

by StevenHelmer

I purchased this for dinner last night. Read to find out what I thought of it.

Product Description: Frozen "family-sized" lasagna dinner from the On-Cor brand which is prepared either in your oven or microwave. I purchased this product at one of our local grocery stores yesterday evening for around $3.00 and prepared it as a dinner for two for my wife and me last night, cooking it in the microwave.


My wife has been fighting some sort of bug for the past couple of days and, because of this, I told her I would take care of dinner yesterday. This resulted in a trip to the store and, since it was already starting to get late (I had to wait for my oldest daughter to get done with her theater group), I looked for something simple. This ended up being an On-Cor Family-Sized Lasagna in Meat Sauce.

This is a product I've purchased in the past, usually for reasons similar to the ones that led to last night's purchase.And, for the most part, I think it is a pretty decent product, at least if you're looking for something in a pinch.

One thing, in particular, I like about this product is the price. This is much more affordable than most of the other frozen lasagna choices. In fact, I purchased this for about the same price I would purchase a single-serve portion from some other brands. Considering I don't get paid until tomorrow, this was somewhat important last night.

Also, the lasagna does have a good flavor to it. It's definitely not as good as homemade lasagna. But, at least when compared to most of it's frozen counterparts, I really have no complaints. There's a decent amount of meat in the sauce and the sauce itself has a good blend of seasonings in it.

My only real complaint about this product is it isn't overly filling. It's advertised as being family-sized. But, in reality, there's only really enough for two adults. Even then, my wife and I usually have to make a salad or have bread sticks with it in order to make sure we had enough to eat and aren't snacking an hour later. As a result, I would only recommend this product if you plan on having something with it like we do or want it for a lighter meal.

Final Opinion

As long as you have a salad or bread sticks to eat with this product, it is a frozen lasagna I would recommend. It's affordable and has a decent flavor, two things that do make it a brand I will continue to purchase.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
As I mention in other wizzleys that you've shared with us all about edible products, I appreciate knowing about the "A" and "B" grade comestibles. The former especially and usually the latter can be added to extend what I serve when there are more guests or more re-serving requests than anticipated.

What kind of salad would you and your wife recommend?
