Lean Cuisine Cheese Tortellini Review

Lean Cuisine Cheese Tortellini

Pasta seems to consistently be the best part of Lean Cuisine’s lineup. Their Spicy Penne Arrabiata and Four Cheese Cannelloni, for example, are must-tries for any frozen food enthusiast. So we had pretty high expectations for the Cheese Tortellini.

While it’s a pretty good tasting dish, it doesn’t live up to the expectations set by its peers.

Normally, we love Lean Cuisine’s red sauce, but the sauce in this dish is just alright. It’s a little too watery too. It does thicken up if you let it cool for a bit, but even so, we’d have liked something just a tad thicker.

The cheese content seems pretty sparse as well. Each shell contains some cheese, but if you cut one open and examine a cross-section, you’ll find just a faint dribble of ricotta and romano. There’s some parmesan as well, which does give the flavor a little boost.

With only 300 calories (70 from fat), this dish won’t break your diet, so that’s a plus. It has 650 mg of sodium, which is pretty high but actually a lot lower than some of the other dishes we’ve tried.

Lean Cuisine’s Cheese Tortellini isn’t our favorite Lean Cuisine pasta dish, but this is a case where the other products in this line are just too tasty for a comparison to be fair. Which is to say, don’t be afraid to try this frozen food, but be aware that there are other dishes in this line that might blow you away. The Cheese Tortellini can’t compete with that.
