– “Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese’ –
This is a frozen Lean Cuisine dish, so the “presentation” is a microwavable container, truly chic. Actually not that bad as far as microwave dinners go.
You know, this was pretty good. The white cheddar definitely added a surprising heft of flavor; I definitely enjoyed ingesting it.
The creaminess of this mac was the standard for cheeses that are microwaved, which is not bad, but can get a little bit watery on occasion. Very average creaminess, not necessarily good or bad.
Although this cheese sauce was flavorful, the true cheesiness of it wasn’t really there. This makes sense, being that it is a microwavable cream sauce, so only the cheesy flavor/essence of it is the only place that the cheesiness comes through.
This mac-eating experience was surprisingly good, especially for a microwavable macaroni dish. The pasta itself was a little grainy, but definitely not bad. The incorporation of cavatappi noodles added a nice pinch of panache. In any event, who can really argue with a meal that takes 4 minutes to prepare?
