October 19 Frozen Meal: Healthy Choice Creamy Basil Pesto
Monday, 2010 November 22 - 2:57 pm
"9 grain cavatappi pasta, broccoli and tomatoes in a creamy pesto sauce, topped with mozzarella cheese."

Box

Meal

Yes, I'm aware that I'm posting these a month after eating them. I keep notes on them as I eat, but sometimes I don't have the chance to edit the photos and write the full review right away. Then I procrastinate and get behind, and we end up where we are now. I'll try to catch up a bit over the next few days.

Taste: This dish has no meat, and the cheese kind of just disappears into the pasta once you stir it. I can't make out much basil or garlic flavor; what I mostly notice is sweetness. As it turns out, there's sugar added to this. That makes me suspicious that they're trying to cover up something. There's a fair helping of broccoli and tomato chopped up into tiny bits, but this is really mostly just pasta and sauce. With more real garlic, this might have been better. Score: 2.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Pretty good; low in vitamins. Score: 2.5/3.0

Packaging: Required peeling back the film and stirring midway through cooking. Score: 1.5/2.0

Total Score: 6.5/10.0
