I love many Healthy Choice food products. Recently, I came across Healthy Choice Marinara Manicotti Formaggio Meal in the frozen dinners section of my local grocery store. I decided to purchase this meal, try it and write an unbiased product review all about my experience. Here is what I discovered!
Healthy Choice Marinara Manicotti Formaggio Meal costs a bit over three dollars. This dinner has whole grain pasta with four cheeses in marinara sauce. It has a side dish of broccoli and a dessert of caramel multi grain crisp. That all sounded very good to me. I love manicotti and since this complete meal has only 350 calories, I could not wait to try it! This is a meatless meal and though I did wish it had a meat sauce, along with mushrooms, I was willing to take a chance.
Healthy Choice Marinara Manicotti Formaggio Meal has a lot of good nutritional things going for it, in my opinion. It is low cal and low in fat. It has 13 grams of protein along with 24 grams of whole grain. That is fabulous. It gives me a full serving of veggies and a real fruit dessert. It is also Smart Choice program approved. Not to mention that it counts for 7 weight watchers points. I liked all of that!
The preparation of Healthy Choice Marinara Manicotti Formaggio Meal is very simple and fast. It is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I only had to remove the film cover from the dessert, slit an opening over the veggies and microwave on high for three and one half minutes. I spooned the sauce over the entree and continued cooking for four more minutes. I then let this meal stand for two minutes. This dinner smelled yummy! It looked great, too.
When I tried the manicotti, I loved it. It is very filling and hearty. Full of cheeses and flavor. The marinara sauce was excellent. For a frozen meal, especially a healthy one, this entree was delicious. The broccoli was tender and fresh tasting. The caramel apple crisp was very pleasing. I really liked this meal. The entree serving size is perfect. I was very full after eating this dinner. I rate Healthy Choice Marinara Manicotti Formaggio Meal four stars out of five stars. I would have liked to have had some meat and mushrooms in this but, it was pretty good without it, I must admit. I will be buying this meal again. It is worth the money.
