Looks: Instead of a thick juicy tomato sauce, I see a dry brown bowl of noodles and meat. 3 out of 5
Taste: Bland. The sausage coins were ok, but everything else was just bleh – gritty meatballs, lackluster sauce, overcooked noodles. 2 out of 5
Looks like the only thing worth eating from Marie Callendar’s is the chicken pot pie. Everything else is either brown, gritty and bland or disgustingly cheesericey.
Those pasta al dente ones are hard to come by with what’s good. I seriously suggest NOT getting the Creamy Basil Chicken one. The skin on the zucchini in mine was so hard I felt like I was chewing on cardboard, and then it was attached to some kind of goopy mess that used to be a vegetable.
Have you ever done a Zatarains?
Uh…I had that earlier today actually(how weird is that) and the sauce was definitely NOT bland..it was actually too spicy for me..other than that the meatballs and sausage were good :3
Eww. It looks so good on the box. That’s disappointing.
I tried it today, it was really good. The sausages were a little chewy but the meatballs were really delicious and flavorful =D
