Trader Joe’s Fusilli with Vegetables & Basil Pesto Review

Trader Joe's Fusilli with Vegetables & Basil Pesto

The Freezer Meal Frenzy staff loves pesto, and we love pasta too. We’re also huge fans of the robust freezer section at Trader Joe’s. So when we spotted the┬áTrader Joe’s Fusilli with Vegetables & Basil Pesto, we knew we had to give it a try.

The highlight of the meal is definitely the vegetables. This dish contains an array of fresh veggies, from cherry tomatoes to zucchini to yellow bell peppers. All of the veggies are bursting with flavor, especially the juicy cherry tomatoes. Trader Joe’s isn’t stingy with the vegetables here — we were able to enjoy some fresh veggies in every bite.

Unfortunately, this dish barely includes any pesto. Even after we stirred the meal, there wasn’t enough pesto to cover all the noodles. According to the label, this meal also contains cheese, but we couldn’t taste it at all. The vegetables are good enough to eat on their own, but the noodles are incredibly bland.

Trader Joe’s Fusilli with Vegetables & Basil Pesto is cheap and fairly healthy, but flavor-wise, it isn’t anything impressive. You can find much tastier options in the freezer aisle at Trader Joe’s. If you’re buying this dish because you love fresh vegetables, you might be satisfied, but if you’re picking it up for the pesto, prepare to be disappointed.
