Mom Made Meals Cheesey Mac
Critic Overall Rank:
A traditional comfort food. What’s better than some ooey gooey cheesy macaroni on a cold winter day or after a stressful day at work/school?
Exactly. But, we all know how Velveeta and Kraft’s nutritional stats hold up. And after preparing Kraft’s boxed version with butter and milk, I sure got the blues (of regret for eating it!). So, Mom Made Foods makes a healthier alternative to macaroni & cheese. “Mom Made” makes it seem like it’s geared toward children, but trust me, all ages can enjoy this dish.
Mom Made Cheesy Mac Meal has some extra health benefits in their yogurt. They sneak in butternut squash and sweet potatoes in their cheese sauce- but you would never tell. After heating up this individual tray (yay portion control!), you don’t see any chunks of squash or potatoes, just a bunch of elbow macaroni and cute little peas as well.
After heating it up, the macaroni cooked nicely. It wasn’t too chewy or overdone either. Just the way I like my macaroni- has a bite but doesn’t fall to pieces in my mouth.
The peas were nice and crisp too, not mushy blobs. I personally love peas, and i hate when frozen dinners ruin them by making them all soggy. Not the case here!
Moving on to the cheese sauce, it was thicker than I expected. It wasn’t a runny cheese sauce, and it really stuck on the macaroni. It was more of a milder cheese taste than I would expected, and it wasn’t as salty tasting as Velveeta or other boxed brands (there’s only 340mg of sodium per serving as compared to 720mg+ in other varieties!). It was good though. An enjoyable mac & cheese entree.
