My review of the Healthy Choice All Natural Entrées: Pumpkin Squash Ravioli frozen entrée. Note that this is labeled as a vegetarian entree on their website, but not mentioned on the box...
Taste: The butternut squash and asparagus tasted fine, and paired nicely with the butter-sage sauce. The pumpkin filling in the ravioli was quite lovely. The Granny Smith apple chunks provided a nice crunch to a soft meal, but seemed to not fit with the other flavors.
Quality: The ravioli were quite pasty and chewy. The asparagus, apple and butternut were all of good quality. Everything was bright and fresh looking.
Meets expectations/marketing: The ravioli definitnely look thinner/flakier in the picture, and there was less squash and more apple than pictured.
Filling: Yes, it was filling, but I'll still probably want my 4:30pm fiber bar.
Value: $2.49 on sale at Wegman's.
Overall: The pumpkin really leaves such a nice aftertaste, that I might buy it again if it was on sale. And 6 points is a little high for everyday with lunch.
