Marie Callender's Fettuccini Alfredo with Garlic Bread

Photobucket
I haven't been to an actual Marie Callender's restaurant in years but I do like they're frozen offerings.
The Fettuccini Alfredo has long been a favorite of mine. The sauce is thick and creamy. It's definitely on the basic side- don't be looking for complex flavors, multiple cheeses or pepper. But for comfort food it's pretty good.
The pasta is surprisingly al dente for frozen pasta. This version also comes with mixed veg- which translates into broccoli and carrots. The vegetables are well... frozen, not bad but nothing special. The garlic bread is just bad. The flavor is ok, it's buttery, it's garlicky. The microwave is just not it's friend. Some parts were rock hard, others were soggy.

A good meal for those times you just don't want to think about it.

That's what I thought of it, too. It's not the greatest frozen meal ever, but sometimes it really hits the spot.

Interesting review, I'll definitly have to check it out. I know, frozen bread rarely does well in the microwave.
