Lean Cuisine Features Butternut Squash Ravioli Review

Lean Cuisine Features Butternut Squash Ravioli

For whatever reason, Lean Cuisine never seems to be content with its product packaging. Time and time again, we’ve checked the Lean Cuisine section of the freezer aisle and spotted old favorites with a fresh new look. Will these folks ever rest? We don’t think so!

We love virtually anything made with butternut squash, so when we saw that the Lean Cuisine Butternut Squash Ravioli had gotten a facelift (and was moved to the new Features line), we were excited to give it another try (we previously reviewed this frozen meal when it was part of the Marketplace line).

Heating up Lean Cuisine meals is always pretty easy. Like most of Lean Cuisine’s other dishes, this one just needs to be heated in the microwave, stirred, and then heated for a little bit longer. If you’re looking for frozen meals that are easy to take to work, we really can’t recommend Lean Cuisine enough.

It looks like Lean Cuisine has made a few small changes to this meal since we last reviewed it. The ingredients appear to be pretty similar, but the calorie content is higher. This version is 290 calories, while the old version contains 270 calories. We thought that this version of the meal seemed a little saucier, and we suspect that’s where those calories are coming from.

Last time around, we said that the butternut squash filling was the highlight of this dish, and we haven’t changed our minds since then. The veggies are a little bit bland, and the creamy sauce doesn’t really add that much to the dish. The blend of ricotta cheese and butternut squash is what makes this meal special.

The Lean Cuisine Features Butternut Squash Ravioli isn’t anything special — aside from the butternut squash filling — but it’s a decent enough dish that’s incredibly easy to make. Even with the slightly elevated calorie count, it’s a diet-friendly meal that manages to feel a little indulgent. If you love squash as much as our staffers do and you’re on the lookout for quick-and-easy lunches, search for this newly upgraded meal in the freezer aisle of your local grocery store.
