Frozen Food Review: Healthy Choice Tortellini Primavera Parmesan
First, I nibble on a sauce-covered carrot that proves to be rather crisp, especially for a frozen entrée. The sauce has a nice “spring”-like taste to it and the red peppers are employed properly. The zucchini is also a nice touch. That being said, it could use a touch more salt, heat, and garlic to go with the veggies.
The tortellini is a little on the doughy side, but they do have nice flavors (by frozen food standards), on the inside and, when taken together with some of the sauce and vegetables, the stuffed pasta delivers a pleasant hit of cheese in a full bite.
This dish is not ground breaking Italian cuisine by any means and it can grow a tad bit bland after several bites, but it is not a disappointing or wasted lunch by any means.
One final plus about this grub is that I certainly feel like I’ve eaten a healthy portion of vegetables with my lunch. I rarely get that feeling with my usual lunchtime options.
Random note: it pairs well with Mountain Dew Throwback.
3.5 out of 5 Warm Spring Rains, including a bonus half-point for making me eat 2.5 servings of veggies in one meal.
