Lean Cuisine Cafe Classics Bowl: Grilled Chicken Caesar

This was fair at the very best. Radiatore pasta refers to the little "radiator" shaped pasta. In this case a somewhat bland version but not too overcooked. The broccoli was good and fairly crisp when cooked on the microwave settings. The chicken was somewhat moist and didn't have the dry flavor that a lot of microwave meals will have.

The sauce was slightly thin but had an OK garlic taste although not much of the parmesan came through. 2 1/2 forks.
