What We Ate: Amy's Country Cheddar Bowl
Organic Pasta and Vegetables in Cheddar Cheese Sauce
The Facts: 430 calories, 21g fat (6g saturated fat), 690g sodium and not mention 45g of carbs
Why This One: We were starting to feel a bit "processed" and decided to splurge for something organic and natural.
The details after the jump.
Taste: Not bad, not bad. It's a very "adult" version of mac & cheese. Lots of veggie. Potatoes, carrots, broccoli and, of course, red pepper (why is red pepper in everything?) all of which tasted surprisingly fresh and flavorful. The tofu seemed unnecessary, but I guess those health nuts out there need to get their protein when they can. The pasta is tender and chewy, but in a good way. The pasta held up well in the dense cheese sauce that actually tasted like real cheese. The sauce had the tang of fancy cheddar cheese with just a hint of garlic. The only issue with the sauce, was that it was so thick once it cooled, it turned into a bit of a coagulated mess. It also left a weird funk on your teeth. All in all it was a nice change from the norm.
Score: on a scale of 1- 10; I would give this an 8. It loses points for the tofu and funky mouth film.
