Stouffer’s Fettuccini Alfredo with Broccoli Review

Stouffer's Fettuccini Alfredo with Broccoli

Stouffer’s Fettuccini Alfredo, which we’d reviewed in the past, is a must-try for fettuccine lovers. It’s rich, creamy, and delicious, and it’s pretty much our gold standard when it comes to frozen versions of the stuff. So of course we get excited to try any new version of it that Stouffer’s decides to put out.

So today, we’re checking out the Stouffer’s Fettuccini Alfredo with Broccoli, which is part of the Simply Crafted frozen food line (alongside the Spicy Pomodoro Penne). We haven’t been able to find this in a single-serve option, so we picked up the family-size version to see what it’s all about.

Of course, with the large size comes a very long cook time. While you can heat this in the microwave if you’d like — which takes about 14 minutes — we decided to go all-out and use the oven. If you follow our lead, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit, then place the tray of fettuccini on a cookie sheet and cook for 40 minutes. While that already seems like a long time, keep in mind that you’re not done yet. Remove this from the oven, uncover it and give it a good stir, then pop it back in for another 30 minutes. Yes, this meal has a 70-minute cook time.

Now, this comes out of the oven with the top dark and crispy, as you can see in the picture above. But the top layer is a little deceiving. The rest of the meal is much lighter in color, and obviously it’s not crispy in the slightest (except for a few pieces here and there.

This isn’t quite as creamy as the plain Fettuccini Alfredo. Since it’s a little bit lighter in sauce than its single-serve sibling, that’s to be expected. However, the flavor is quite good. The alfredo sauce has parmesan in it, so it doesn’t have that buttercream flavor that the plain version has. This one’s flavor is a bit more subtle.

It’s the broccoli, of course, that steals the show here. Broccoli is a potent, rich vegetable, and that fact is proudly on display here. Bad broccoli could have really ruined a dish like this, so thankfully this stuff tastes nice and fresh. Plus, it comes in nice, big chunks. It’s a great compliment to that parmesan alfredo sauce.

This is actually pretty low in calories for an alfredo dish. One serving contains only 260 calories (60 from fat). Now, there are three and a half servings in a box, so a full box contains 910 calories (210 from fat). We really doubt anyone will eat a full box of this in a sitting, as it’s enormous. We think this is a great-sized meal for two people, and our image above shows what about half the container looks like. It’s the perfect serving size, right?

The Stouffer’s Fettuccini Alfredo with Broccoli is very good. If you have some time to spare, we think this really comes out nicely in the oven. Just plan on sharing; this is a lot of food!
