Ingredients go well together, and satisfying size and price

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta:

This is one of the better choices among the Lean Cuisine line. It cooks up easily in one simple step, and is tasty with fresh ingredients that sport the right amount of seasonings and sauce. The noodles cook up just about right too, with a pleasing texture. The shrimp is fresh and adds a good protein course. But the main reasons why we like this product are price and calories. My husband is losing weight and is often looking for inexpensive, satisfying and tasty low calorie meals that he can cook up easily himself. This selection fits that by being lower calorie, yet filling and pleasantly satisfying, and it does not break the bank to get several of them every payday. We can afford the luxury of ready made meals like this one because the price is often among the most reasonable in the whole frozen food aisle. We could pay even less for other brands, but they either have smaller and less satisfying portion sizes and simply have less flavor. This one offers a better option and is worth paying a little more for. He enjoys one of these every day for lunch, while I work and am not home to cook for him. He is not all inclined to cook, even boil water, so being able to put this right into the microwave and eat it in 5 minutes is great for him.

Pretty good

Comments about Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta:

Lean Cuisine Shrimp and Angel Hair Pasta is a pretty good dinner. Aside from being quick and easy, it makes a pretty filling lunch. It is full of small, tender and tasty shrimp that lay on a bed of angel hair pasta. They give you a nice amount of shrimp and pasta! The sauce is delicious-very creamy and flavorful. This dinner is only 220 calories!

Many great reasons.

Comments about Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta:

There is always so much to say about lean cuisine. They are certainly at the cutting edge of the newest innovations and the latest food trends. With this one - there is no exception. Lean cuisine really played up the creamy sauce with sherry and shrimp combined by balancing it in the best manner possible - Ripe red peppers and pasta. not only that though, this meal really packs a punch. Shrimp for your omega 3's and more. Concerning calories and fat - this meal is very conservative at approximately 235. The pasta does however contain wheat and gluten. It could also be spiced up just a little more with some black pepper. Overall, it is a good meal in a sizable portion and is quite convenient for a take along to work or an evening at home. It cooks up in just over two minutes and helps me to stay on track when I am craving pasta.

Quick Low calorie meal

By 

from New Kensington, PA

Comments about Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta:

I always like to have a few frozen low calorie meals in the freezer for nights when no one else is home.  Great to toss in the mircowave and eat with a salad.  This meal is tasty and only semi-filling.  I do wish it contained a few more shrimp, but the flavor is great.

This meal has nice sized shrimp, but the rest is blah!

By 

from Camp Lejeune, NC

Comments about Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta:

I eat a lot of frozen entrees for my lunch and feel like I eat the same ones over and over again, so I recently bought a new one - **Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta**.  I love pasta and I love it when there is seafood in my pasta, so this meal seemed perfect.  It didn't meet my expectations, but it isn't horrible either.

**Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta **contains spaghetti (not angel hair as the title implies), shrimp, red bell pepper and carrots in a "creamy seafood sauce". 

What I do like about this entree is that it has above average sized shrimp in it for a frozen meal.  Usually, the shrimp in these kinds of frozen entrees are those tiny, bay shrimp.  The shrimp in this meal are much bigger and more substantial.  Unfortunately, that's the only positive thing I have to say about **Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta.  **The sauce is horrible.  It is so bland, I can't discern one specific flavor.  It provides a wetness to this meal, but imparts no flavor at all.  The pasta is so over-cooked, it has no texture and doesn't even need to be chewed.  To salvage this meal, I had to add a healthy dose of lemon pepper, and even then it wasn't great.

**Nutrition: **220 calories, 4g fat, 50mg cholesterol, 2g fiber, 14g protein

Maybe my expectations of a frozen meal are too high, but I was totally disappointed in this entree.  Besides the low fat & calories and the size of the shrimp, this meal is a total loss.  I would not recommend it and won't purchase it again.

Not my favorite, but very good.

Comments about Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta:

"*Climb every mountain*" pretty well sums up my ongoing exploration of Lean Cuisine country so I was determined to include *Lean Cuisine Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta in a Creamy Seafood Sauce* even though I must confess that I am not exactly a creamy pasta sauce lover.  Despite this, I must say that this is a well-made entree which even I found enjoyable and may be somebody else's dream dish.  I will say that the small shrimps were especially delightful -- tender but not overdone -- and the entree certainly is a healthy way to eat lunch or a light dinner.
