Recently, I came across Marie Callender’s Pasta Al Dente Tortellini Romano Steamed Dinner in the frozen meals section of my local grocery store. This dinner intrigued me. I just had to purchase it, try it out and write a review all about it. Here is what I discovered!
Marie Callender’s Pasta Al Dente Tortellini Romano Steamed Dinner costs around three dollars. I love many Marie Callender’s food products. They are usually high in quality and excellent in taste. The picture of this pasta meal, on the front of the box, looked fabulous. This dish has cheese filled tortellini, marinara sauce, basil and Parmesan cheese. This dish also has Romano cheese and Asiago cheese in it, along with bread crumbs. All of that sounded great to me. I could not wait to taste this meal!
This steamed dish has no preservatives in it. I liked that fact very much. It is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I only had to place it in the microwave and cook on high for four minutes. This meal self vents so there is no venting, puncturing or tearing required. When the dish was cooked fully, I removed the film cover, lifted the steamer basket out and poured it’s contents into the sauce bowl. I then stirred. This meal smelled great and it looked marvelous.
