Smart Ones Mini Rigatoni with Vodka Cream Sauce Review

Smart Ones Mini Rigatoni with Vodka Cream Sauce

Vodka is a wonderful liquid, made from potatoes and heaven, and whoever decided to mix vodka with pasta was a genius. Smart Ones gets into the vodka-infused pasta game with their Mini Rigatoni with Vodka Cream Sauce. Since this is a Weight Watchers item, the SmartPoints value is listed right on the side of the box. This meal is worth 10 SmartPoints.

The rigatoni noodles here are great. They’re wide and stubby, and the vertical ridges let them soak up the vodka sauce.

The vodka cream sauce is pretty good, though we’ve definitely had better. It’s tomato-based, with just the tiniest ghost of vodka in the mix. Obviously, this was never intended to get a person liquored up or anything, but there’s just enough vodka to let you know it’s there.

There’s just a little bit of mozzarella cheese on top, but it’s not really enough to get excited about. We would have loved more, but this dish is already pushing Smart Ones’ typically low calorie counts. We understand why they made that choice, even if it’s not exactly what we wanted.

At 320 calories (45 from fat), this isn’t Smart Ones’ leanest meal, but it should still be okay for dieters. It also includes 520 mg of sodium, which isn’t bad for a frozen meal but it might be enough to turn anyone away who’s carefully monitoring sodium levels.

Smart Ones’ Mini Rigatoni with Vodka Cream Sauce isn’t the best frozen pasta on the market, but it’s still quite good. We could definitely see ourselves returning to this one.
