CLOSED ~ Romano’s Macaroni Grill frozen entrées Review and Giveaway



I love when I get those emails from MyBlogSpark because I know I will always be receiving something great to sample and review. This is one of those cases. I was asked to review a new Romano's Macaroni Grill frozen entree.

These babies are now available in the freezer section of your local grocery store. They are inspired by the delicious meals you get at Romano's Macaroni Grill Restaurants. Yummo! You know am all about food so this was a review I looked forward to doing! The new flavors look yummy as well. They include: Grilled Chicken Florentine, Basil Parmesan Chicken, Roasted Garlic Shrimp Scampi and Spicy Italian Sausage Pomodoro.

Let's be honest, my hubby is spoiled. I love to cook so he gets home cooked meals almost everyday. Now that I am working, we eat out a little more but I still like to cook as much as I can. But sometimes after my long commute, I am over it. I don't want to come home and make a meal. He thumbs his nose at frozen entrees so I wasn't so sure if he would like this. But I fed it to him anyway.

I received the Basil Parmesan Chicken meal and let me tell you that it doesn't get much easier than this. All I had to do is add 1/4 cup of milk to my pan and then thecontents of the package. I stirred it and left it to cook for 16 minutes. That's all folks! Dinner was ready in under 30 minutes. The only complaint I usually have about these meals is that there is not that much food but this was plenty for the two of us. I added a salad and some garlic toast and dinner was served.

Okay, now on to the important part, the taste. It was delicious. It was creamy and satisfying. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce was delish! The veggies stayed crispy and didn't get soggy as many do in frozen entrees. And the big surprise, hubby loved it. He actually ate everything, didn't complain and exclaimed that we should try the other flavors. Thank goodness because every Romano's Macaroni Grill I buy, is one less meal I have to make! WOO!

Try it, you'll like it! And now one of you will get the opportunity to try one these meals and also receive a pasta dish and pasta tongs. Let me tell you that the tongs rock! They are sturdy and I use tongs for a lot of cooking so I was in hog heaven with these.

So read the rules and enter. I think you guys would love this and if you are as bus and lazy as I am, they are a perfect quick meal!

Mandatory Entry

This one is easy my friends, just tell me which of the four new entrees would tickle your fancy!
