Lean Cuisine Shrimp Alfredo

Alfredo sauce usually isn't that healthy since it's usually made with cream, but Lean Cuisine found a way to incorporate just enough in their Lean Cuisine Shrimp Alfredo dish, without breaking the calorie bank.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 meal (255 grams)
Calories: 210
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 9%
Sodium: 650 mg, 27%
Carbohydrates: 28 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 11%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 15 grams

After the dish was microwaved and ready to eat, I was pleased with the texture of the shrimp and the vegetables, which consisted of broccoli and peas (which there was a lot less of). The linguini pasta was also good, but I found the Alfredo sauce to be a bit thin and watery - but that's definitely one way to cut calories and fat a bit, so I didn't mind too much. The shrimp was delicious (there were 7 pieces - I counted), and overall, I thought the entire meal made for a tasty, pleasant lunch - with a side salad to make it more filling.

Each 225 gram package of Lean Cuisine Shrimp Alfredo provides 210 calories, 4 grams of total fat, 2 grams of which is saturated (6% and 9% of the daily value) and 60 milligrams of cholesterol (20% of the DV). There is also 650 milligrams of sodium (27% DV), 15 grams of protein, 3 grams of dietary fiber (11% of the DV) and 3 grams of sugars.

The packaging mentions that there are no preservatives and the ingredients list starts with blanched linguine (water, semolina, wheat gluten), skim milk, shrimp, broccoli, water and peas - the good stuff is right at the beginning of the list - always a good sign.

I paid $2.20 for this entree (sale price) and there was so much that I liked - the low calorie, protein, shrimp, veggies and even the sauce - so I would definitely buy this again.
