Smart Ones: Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

A decent filling and healthy choice.

Today I am trying a new meal.  I paid $1.74 for Smart Ones Spaghetti meal. I am not huge fan of microwave meals.

The photo is a fair representation of the meal inside.  It absolutely does not have the number of mushrooms in the photo, but that is ok because I don’t care for mushrooms.

Ingredients:  MEAT SAUCE (TOMATO PUREE (WATER, TOMATO PASTE), DICED TOMATOES IN JUICE (TOMATOES, TOMATO JUICE, CITRIC ACID, CALCIUM CHLORIDE), COOKED SEASONED MEAT CRUMBLES (BEEF AND PORK, WATER, SALT), RED BELL PEPPERS, ONIONS, WATER, MODIFIED CORNSTARCH, ROMANO CHEESE MADE FROM COW’S MILK (CULTURED PART SKIM COW’S MILK, SALT, ENZYMES), GARLIC, SUGAR, SPICES, OLIVE OIL, SALT, DEHYDRATED GARLIC, XANTHAN GUM), COOKED ENRICHED PASTA PRODUCT (WATER, ENRICHED PASTA PRODUCT (SEMOLINA WHEAT FLOUR, WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, MODIFIED WHEAT STARCH, NIACIN, IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE, RIBOFLAVIN, FOLIC ACID), CARRAGEENAN).

The bottom line: It is a pretty good meal for lunch or dinner when you are not feeling like cooking. I did add a little parmesan cheese to it, but overall this is a meal I will buy again.  Would I recommend this to others?  Absolutely.
