I like the ricotta cheese and spinach pasta that is pretty good.

As for another brand I really like Amy’s Kitchen items. I only buy the ones less than 400 calories and if you do Weight Watchers they range from 5-8 points (a typical lunch). They are vegetarian (some vegan) and are entirely organic. They are super flavorful and have a range of more than the typical pasta and Asian dishes.

I like the spinach and artichoke dip with pita bread. I also like the pizzas, I actually had one for lunch today!

@kate169: Other favorites from Amy’s: Tortilla Casserole and the Southern Dinner. Both about 350 calories or so.

I love the Smart Ones by Weight Watchers and I like the Chicken Enchilada Suiza.  I got kind of burned out from eating them for almost a year as a meal since I don’t cook much and that one still has a kick in flavor while some of the others don’t taste like anything.

I like the Lean Cuisine Spa Shrimp Alfredo, but my ultimate favorite frozen dinner is Smart Ones Three Cheese Ziti. That stuff is like crack. Gooey, cheesy crack.

Smart Ones’ Fettucini Alfredo isn’t bad either. It’s the only one I’ve found that has nice big pieces of broccoli florets in it instead of just teeny chunks of the stems, and I love me some broccoli.

I really like the mac n’ cheese, but my favorite has to be the cheddar potatoes with broccoli.  Yum!

When I’m on a business trip and know I’ll be in the same place for a week, I try to stay at a hotel that has a kitchen so I can make my own coffee (with milk…hate the fake stuff), breakfast, and dinner. 

I’ve gotten in the habit of getting a couple of the Lean Cuisine butternut squash ravioli dinners each time.  I know that stuff is high in sodium, but I love those littl raviolis!

Ughh.. the only problem is , I want to eat like 3 of them instead of one !

I’ve only tried them once or twice, and it was an Amys Kitchen one- very tasty!

I tend to stick with the pastas, so I can cut fresh veggies and throw in them at lunch.  (Or frozen depending on my choice).  Actually, now that I type this I realize I add veggies to all of them

The potstickers are amazing.  I have those with a bowl of shredded cabbage with sesame ginger dressing, YUM.

Bonus… Lean Cuisine is on sale for $1.88 this week at my local grocery store

I love the BBQ chicken pizza, the margherita pizza, and the spicy ginger chicken.

Healthy Choice meals are my favorite like that though.  I could alternate between the ravioli florentine marinara and the sweet pineapple chicken all week long!

Lean Cuisine always looks SO good on the commercials and then when I get them home they are just gross. Maybe I overcook them or something.

Their pizza is surprisingly decent if you’re dieting and just want some freakin pizza. I’ll give them that.

I like the Amy’s frozen foods.
