October 18 Frozen Meal: Lean Cuisine Shrimp and Angel Hair Pasta
Thursday, 2010 November 11 - 7:10 pm
"In a creamy seafood sauce." Yes, seafood sauce. Whale? Plankton? Who knows.

Box

Meal

Taste: One thing I've come to realize is that the shrimp in these frozen meals are always, always overcooked. They're flavorless bits of rubbery meat. Why even bother? Imitation crab would be better. In this dish, the pasta is also overcooked. There are tiny bits of carrots and red peppers, but they add minimal flavor. It turns out that the "seafood" sauce gets its flavor from powdered shrimp and powdered scallops; otherwise it's a somewhat salty white wine sauce with pureed vegetables for color. It's not objectionable, but it just tastes cheap. Score: 2.0/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Very little fiber, but loaded with Vitamin A. Score: 2.5/3.0

Packaging: Actually I forgot to note whether this required stirring or not. I think it did. I'll double-check later and update this if required.Score: 1.5/2.0

Total Score: 6.0/10.0
