Lean Cuisine Shrimp Alfredo Review

Lean Cuisine Shrimp Alfredo

Lean Cuisine can make a surprisingly good pasta dish, as proven by their Spicy Penne Arrabiata and their Four Cheese Cannelloni. We also found their Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta to be pretty alright, so we decided to check out some more of their shrimp-themed pasta dishes. The next item on that tragically short list is the Shrimp Alfredo.

This meal blends alfredo sauce and noodles with some greens and, of course, some shrimp. The alfredo sauce isn’t going to blow anyone away, but it’s a pretty inoffensive sauce that serves as the backbone for this dish. With a fair helping of both broccoli and peas, this isn’t a flavorless dish by any means. The veggies taste pretty good and don’t have that freezer-burned texture that frozen veggies sometimes get.

We found the size of the noodles to be quite appealing. The angel hair pasta found in the other Lean Cuisine shrimp dish we’ve tried was pretty much perfect, but even so, we think the larger size is quite good as well. If the noodles were even larger still, we might complain, but as is, they’re pretty great.

Of course, the centerpiece of this meal is the shrimp. We would have loved to see more of it, as our meal came with only six of the little guys, but it tastes pretty good. It’s maybe a little on the fishy side for our tastes — not all shrimp has that distinctively pungent seafood flavor, and as Midwesterners, we prefer a milder seafood flavor. Even so, we found this shrimp to be pretty enjoyable.

It might come as a shocker, then, that this whole meal weighs in at 200 calories (a measly 30 of those from fat). It’s the kind of meal you can eat two of without feeling too horrendously guilty.

We heartily approve of Lean Cuisine’s Shrimp Alfredo, and we’ll definitely be eating this frozen meal again.
