I really thought these were suppose to be a meal for two so I was disappointed that it was not.  Plus even more sad was that it didn't even fill me up (they are only 9 oz each).  So I was still hungry and wanted more to eat once I had consumed them.

I tried the Prego Ready Meals Creamy Three Cheese Alfredo Rotini.  I like how nice and creamy the sauce is but sadly I am not a fan of alfrado sauce (never have been) so the taste was just ok to me.  The texture of the pasta was good.  Of the three Ready Meals I tried this one was the only one that didn't easily come out of the package.  The major disappointment for this particular flavor was that it has 0.5 grams of trans fat in it.  This was upsetting and a major cause for me to not really purchase this flavor again.

I tried the Pace Ready Meals Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla and was surprised by how mildly spicy it was.  Which is actually a good thing since I do not like to consume spicy foods.  The flavor of the cheese is mild but present.  I did like it but would of probably liked even more cheese.  I did like the texture of the rice.  It wasn't chewy or hard which I usually find in instant like meals such as this.  There wasn't much chicken in it which I was disappointed in since the name of the meal has "Chicken" in it.  In fact, I think I tasted one nice chunk of chicken in the whole meal.  I did like the vegetables in the meal though, especially the corn.

I got to try out the Prego Ready Meals Marinara & Italian Sausage Rotini. The texture of the pasta was good. You could definitely taste the sausage as sadly it was a little too spicy for me. In fact, I think it was more spicy than the Pace Ready Meals Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla was. I did like how there was a lot of sausage pieces though. This particular meal would of been my favorite if it wasn't so spicy. However, since it was too spicy, it ended up not being my favorite.
