Archer Farms Fettuccine Alfredo Review

Archer Farms Fettuccine Alfredo

Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers aren’t that picky. We’re happy to eat spicy foods or dishes that are a little more exotic. With that said, we aren’t adverse to comfort food either. We thought that the Archer Farms Fettuccine Alfredo might make for an easy and satisfying dinner.

We’re not sure this meal is totally satisfying, but it’s definitely simple. All you have to do is toss the contents of the bag into a pan, along with some water and oil. After about seven minutes on the stove, it should be ready to eat. Want to make things even easier for yourself? You can also cook it in the microwave.

Even though the bag is fairly large, there’s actually not that much pasta inside. The entire bag yielded just one bowl of pasta, which isn’t really enough to feel multiple people. Archer Farms suggests pairing this with grilled chicken or broiled pork tenderloin, which could definitely help stretch the meal. However, if you don’t have extra ingredients on hand, you may be disappointed by the amount of pasta here. The image below shows the full contents of the bag in a serving dish.

How is the pasta itself? It’s not bad, but it’s not anything exciting either. You’d get the same results if you boiled up some dried pasta and added a little bit of alfredo sauce from a jar. It’s perfectly fine, and it could be greatly improved with a few extra ingredients, but if you’re expecting restaurant-quality food, you’re going to be disappointed.

Ultimately, we’re just not sure this meal is good enough to justify all of the calories in it. Archer Farms claims there are three servings per bag, but if you’re not serving this one the side, you’ll probably be eating all of the pasta yourself. That’s 650 calories of low-protein, so-so pasta. Personally, we’d rather have a big bowl of mac n’ cheese.

The Archer Farms Fettuccine Alfredo isn’t bad, but it isn’t impressive either. If you’re got a real hankering for some alfredo, and you’re not in the mood to boil pasta or open jars, this might be worth a try. If that’s not the case, we’d say that there are better frozen pastas on the market.
