Today's Frozen Meal: Kashi Pesto Pasta Primavera
Friday, 2010 February 5 - 12:40 pm
"Yellow Carrots, Sweet Red Peppers & Peas; Kashi 7 Whole Grain Penne Pasta; Basil Pesto Sauce with Shredded Parmesan Cheese."

Box

Meal

Pesto Pasta Primavera, eh? It's a pretty peculiar persuasion of pesto: it has no pine nuts, and it has canola oil instead of olive oil.

Taste: Weird. I can immediately tell that I'm not eating a normal pesto: it's bitter and somewhat unpleasant, as if it were just a bunch of minced basil that's been frozen and re-heated. Oh, yeah: IT IS. It's actually more of a pistou than a pesto, though even that should use olive oil instead of flavorless canola oil. As for the pasta and vegetables, they're just ordinary. The sauce is the key to this whole thing, and it's not very good. Score: 1.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: 11 grams of fat and a bit more sodium than I'd like, but high in fiber and decent in vitamins. Score: 2.0/3.0

Packaging: Like other Kashi meals, it gets a bonus for using recycled cardboard packaging. Score: 2.0/2.0

Total Score: 5.5/10.0

I ate this pesto dish yesterday and about 3 hours later developed severe abdominal pain and cramps, not mild discomfort, but severe...thought I was having apendicitis attack. Going back to junk food.
