Healthy Choice Baked Entrees Review

Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by ConAgra, all opinions are my own.

This is my third and final review of Healthy Choice products. You can find the first and second posts here and here. Today I'm sharing Healthy Choice Baked Entrees.

After a very long and . . . let's just leave it at long moving process, Whynot and I are finally in our new home! Just him, me and the furbabies and very little else. As we wait patiently for our belongings to arrive we've been a little creative when it comes to our day to day routine. It's a little like camping with a/c but no grill or utensils.

We currently have no pots and pans for cooking so we've been living on meals we can prepare without them. Healthy Choice meals fit in perfectly! We can prepare the entrees in our microwave and eat right out of the container.

• Healthy Choice Baked Entrées combine wholesome, quality ingredients like freshly-made pastas, flavorful sauces and blended cheeses. 

• Baked Entrées not only deliver on the Healthy Choice nutrition people rely on, but also feature culinary favorites and ingredients that win on taste like no other. 

 • Healthy Choice Baked Entrées offer fresh, baked-from-the-oven taste straight from the microwave in ten delicious recipes. 

• In a national taste test, Healthy Choice Four Cheese Ziti Marinara was preferred over Smart Ones Three Cheese Ziti Marinara (Based on a national taste test conducted by an independent research agency with 350 consumers. Smart Ones® is a registered trademark of H.J. Heinz Company.) 

 Healthy Choice Baked Entrees are available in the following yummy varieties: 

• Four Cheese Ziti Marinara: Freshly-made ziti pasta tossed with classic marinara and topped with a blend of fine Italian cheeses; Parmesan, Romano, Asiago and mozzarella. 

 • Roasted Chicken and Potatoes: Savory slices of chicken breast with red skin potatoes, crisp carrots, and tender pearl onions in a light chicken and herb sauce. 

• Fettuccini Alfredo Bake: A classic combination of freshly-made fettuccini pasta and rich Parmesan Alfredo sauce with crisp broccoli and topped with seasoned bread crumbs. 

• Italian Sausage Pasta Bake: Freshly-made whole grain rotini pasta paired with juicy Italian sausage, tossed in a rich garlic marinara together with bubbling mozzarella cheese. 

• Lasagna with Meat Sauce: Three rich layers of freshly-made pasta, hearty meat sauce, and ricotta cheese topped with mozzarella for perfection. 
• Chicken & Rice Cheddar Bake: Whole grain brown & wild rice pilaf with crisp broccoli and sliced chicken breast in a creamy cheddar cheese sauce. 

• Chicken & Spinach Alfredo: Freshly-made whole grain penne pasta tossed with sliced chicken breast, spinach and tomatoes in a creamy Alfredo sauce. 

• Chicken Enchilada Bake: A full-flavored chicken enchilada over cilantro rice and topped with corn, black beans and a decadent queso sauce. 

• Ravioli Marinara Bake: Rich ricotta and spinach filled al dente ravioli tossed in a tomato basil sauce and topped with fresh mozzarella cheese. • Slow Roasted Turkey Bake: Slow roasted turkey breast accompanied by potatoes, butternut squash and crisp green beans topped with classical gravy and crispy onions. 

What we thought:

In less than 5 minutes from freezer to lawn chair (I said we were roughing it) we had a warm, tasty meal. Even better, it was under 300 calories and under the maximum 45 carbs Whynot is supposed to consume at each meal. We sampled the Slow Roasted Turkey Bake, our version of an early Thanksgiving. In all honesty, Whynot is not a fan of onions, but he was easily able to pick those off and still enjoyed his dinner. I especially like the new Even Bake tray that was specially designed to cook evenly so as to avoid those burnt edges. With all the choices Healthy Choice has available, we can try something new every night until our stuff arrives!
