Lean Cuisine Origins Spicy Penne Arrabbiata Review

Lean Cuisine Origins Spicy Penne Arrabbiata

If you think this Lean Cuisine Spicy Penne Arrabbiata looks a bit familiar, you’re a very astute reader. The Freezer Meal Frenzy staff has reviewed this penne dish once before. But now it’s part of Lean Cuisine’s Origins line — when we saw that the meal had a new look, we decided to see if it had a new flavor as well.

We’ve had the original Penne Arrabbiata many times, and were poised to spot any small differences. Fortunately — or unfortunately, if you didn’t enjoy the original meal — we didn’t notice any significant changes. The packaging may be new, but this is almost exactly the same meal. It has the same chunky, spice-filled sauce, the same organic pasta, and the same coating of parmesan cheese.

That said, after giving the label a close examination, we suspect that there may have some very minor changes to the meal. The ingredients are exactly the same, and both meals are just 240 calories. However, it looks like the newer version of the meal has a little less sugar than the original version. Our biggest complaint about Lean Cuisine’s pasta dishes is the added sugar in their sauces, so for us, this is a welcome change.

If you love the original Lean Cuisine Spicy Penne Arrabbiata, you’ll love the new version as well. Lean Cuisine may have altered the packaging and cut back on the sugar, but they haven’t transformed one of their best meals. This is still the same tasty pasta that we know and love.
