I'd never cooked, or had polenta before. The red sauce was good, and the meatballs were fine, but my favorite part of the recipe was the broccolini. I wouldn't make this again, but if I did, I'd substitute the polenta for spaghetti. I really enjoyed the other meal we received from them, and this one was okay, just not something I would have picked.
Blue Apron isn't for the novice cook. They're assuming you have decent equipment and some cooking knowledge. So I wouldn't recommend it if you've never really cooked before. It is a fun thing to do with family or friends though.
To see our first Blue Apron meal, check out my blog post on it.
