The TV Dinner is back! New Leaf Simply Delicious Tuscan Pesto Pasta
In the Land O’Vegan there aren’t an abundance of options in the frozen food section aside from meat analogues and frozen veggies. It’s not like I’ve been complaining my Amy’s Bean Burritos and Enchiladas have helped me out in many a culinary pinch. But you don’t know what you’re missing until something comes along that blows your socks off like New Leaf Simply Delicious Tuscan Pesto Pasta. It’s low in fat, super low in sodium (only 250mg), low in calories (340 calories for an entire meal!) and high in protein (15 grams). Not to mention super creamy, tasty and filling. Surprisingly enough, the only drawback to this dish is that I wish it did have a little more salt! I know, I know. It’s the opposite of what we’ve been saying we want in a good, healthy, vegan dinner but the flavor was lacking a bit of salt and pepper. But that was easily remedied and will definitely not deter me from buying this dish again.
UPDATE: you can find New Leaf Simply Delicious brand products at most Whole Foods. Also check the New Leaf website for other store locations http://www.newleaf4life.com/
