Atkins Frozen Meal Review – Italian Sausage Primavera

Today I am reviewing the new Atkins Frozen Meals.  I am trying the Italian Sausage Primavera.  I bought it at Wal Mart for $3.48

The Italian Sausage Primavera meal consists of Italian Sausage with cauliflower, green beans and spinach in a creamy parmesan romano cheese and red pepper sauce.

After Microwave Cooking

Dislikes:
The ingredient list contained a lot of things I couldn’t pronounce. 
The amount of sodium and cholesterol could be an issue for some people. 
The total amount of food in the meal was less than 1 cup. I would recommend pairing the frozen meal with a large salad etc. if you wanted to really fill up. 

Likes:
It actually was very delicious!  It tasted much better then it looked.
The sausage was very tasty. It tasted comparable to what I would cook at home.  It had a slight spice to it; which I liked. 
The green beans were a pleasant surprise – they were not overly cooked like most frozen meals.  Their fresh taste really came through quite nicely. 

Overall:
The meal tasted good.  I would keep a few on hand and eat occasionally on busy days.

  1. I enjoy this one too. This and the crustless chicken pot pie are my favorites.

  2. The taste was okay and I bought two for 5.00, I ate one a few weeks ago. I was very disappointed, it contained 5 small pieces of pasta.
