Raimondo's Amazing Food

At the Farmer's Market this last Saturday, I convinced Dr Desert Flower to try Raimondo's pesto lasagna.  Raimondo's has a booth every Saturday, and they sell all sorts of red and white sauces Italian dishes that you can taste, eat hot, or take home and re-heat.  They brag how they are "Low Carb" and "Gluten Free", not added salt or sugar.  How can this be delicious you ask?  I don't know what the secret ingredients are... but DAMN!  This stuff is DELICIOUS!   And much of their food is vegetarian friendly as well.

Take for instance the Pesto Lasagna:
Egg Plant, Zucchini, Ricotta & Parmesan Cheese, Lt. Cream, Fresh Basil, Garlic, Pine Nuts.
I'd show you a picture of the actual food, and not just the container, but we SCARFED it up, and it was truly amazing.  We are now hooked.

It is somewhat strange that this delicious restaurant is located in a humble Day's Inn on Camelback in Phoenix, is so incredibly delicious AND healthy for you!   But I am happy that we've found them, and they will be a staple of the Saturday morning Central Phoenix Farmer's Market run.

OH - One thing.. DO NOT Microwave the take home containers!   Low Density Poly Ethylene doesn't do well when subjected to heat, and it will melt and sog.  Take it out, put it on a plate, and enjoy!


  1. Wow, that sounds fantastic! Love the ingredients list.

    (I wonder why they call it lasagna, though? It's got no lasagna in it.)

  2. it looks like lasagna, and it takes like slices of heaven =)
