Lean Cuisine Four Cheese Tortelloni with Pesto Sauce Review

Lean Cuisine Four Cheese Tortelloni with Pesto Sauce

Lean Cuisine products haven’t always impressed us, but we generally enjoy their pasta dishes. They may not be gourmet meals, but they’re fast, easy, and most importantly, tasty. So when we spotted the new Lean Cuisine Four Cheese Tortelloni with Pesto Sauce in the freezer aisle at our local grocery store, we knew we had to check it out.

It doesn’t get much easier than heating a Lean Cuisine meal in the microwave. If you’ve made one before, you know the drill: pop it in the microwave, give it a stir, heat it for another minute or so, and you’re good to go. If you’re looking for low-effort lunches you can bring to work, you really can’t go wrong with Lean Cuisine.

In the picture on the front of the box, you can see a green-hued sauce that’s definitely reminiscent of your standard pesto. As you can see in the image below, however, the actual sauce looks a lot more like alfredo.

It’s a nice creamy sauce, and it is liberally flavored with basil, but this probably won’t satisfy any pesto cravings. In fact, we think that people that hate pesto will still enjoy this dish.

The sauce is nice enough, but what really sells this meal is the tortellini (or tortelloni, with an o, as the package calls it). We only had six tortellini pieces in our bowl, but the noodles are fairly large and absolutely stuffed with ricotta cheese. They’re soft enough to fall apart in your mouth, but sturdy enough to stay together while they’re still in your bowl. They’re not anything fancy, but they’re comforting, delicious, and pretty filling!

The Lean Cuisine Four Cheese Tortelloni with Pesto Sauce doesn’t really taste like a pesto dish to us, but it’s still a great little meal. This is another Lean Cuisine pasta dish that we’d be happy to have as a quick work lunch. If you’re looking for a new Lean Cuisine meal to add to your rotation, you should definitely check this one out.
