Healthy Choice Herb Crusted Fish

Healthy Choice Herb Crusted Fish is described as a, "herb crusted white fish and whole grain pasta in a tomato basil sauce, with green beans and carrots." There haven't been many "fishy" frozen meals that I've enjoyed, but the picture on the front of the packaging looked so enticing that I decided to try this.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 meal (312 grams)
Calories: 270
Total Fat: 5 grams, 8%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams 8%
Sodium: 350 mg, 15%
Carbohydrates: 39 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugars: 8 grams
Protein: 16 grams

The individual components of the meal were okay, but they just didn't come together. The green beans & carrots were firm and plentiful. The pasta was al-dente but flavorless. I gather there should have been a tomato basil sauce, which I came to realize later was the wetness on the underside of the fish - it totally soaked up the sauce, and didn't add anything positive to the eating experience I might add - who wants to eat soggy fish bottoms? The fish itself was - okay - it wasn't dried out, but it wasn't exactly flavorful either.

Each Healthy Choice Herb Crusted Fishh meal (312 grams) provides 270 calories from 5 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of which is saturated (8% of the daily value). 350 mg sodium (15% of the DV), 5 grams of fiber (20% of the DV), 8 grams of sugars and 16 grams of protein.

The ingredients list is a little long-winded, but for the herbs, I did see basil puree listed, in addition to garilc & onion puree plus the generic "spices." I purchased the Healthy Choice Herb Crusted Fish meal for $2.65, and probably wouldn't buy it again since there are a few other choices with similar nutrition facts, but better taste - like Lean Cuisine Salmon with Basil (Review) and Lean Cuisine Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce (Review).

I've been disappointed in the meals that all seem to have the generic "fish" in the name, like Healthy Choice Lemon Pepper Fish (Review) and Lean Cuisine Baked Lemon Pepper Fish (Review).
