I am a big fan of many Stouffer’s Lean Cuisine frozen meals. Recently, I came across Lean Cuisine Classic Macaroni and Beef Dinner in the frozen dinners section of my local grocery store. I decided to purchase this low cal meal, try it out and write an unbiased product review all about my experience with it. Here is what I discovered!
Lean Cuisine Classic Macaroni and Beef Dinner costs around two dollars and thirty cents. Not a bad price for a low cal brand name frozen entree. This dish has macaroni, beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic, spices, tomato sauce and lots of other ingredients in it. I love most mac and beef type dishes, so I was really looking forward to trying this one. When I discovered that it has only 260 calories in it, I was delighted. This dinner also has very little saturated fat and it is rich in fiber and calcium. I loved that!
Lean Cuisine Classic Macaroni and Beef Dinner is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I only had to cut a vent in the film cover, microwave on high for five minutes and then let it stand for two minutes before serving. This dish looked great and it smelled terrific. I could not wait to taste it!
