Counting calories can sometimes seem unfulfilling; however, I discovered a little gem at Wal-Mart the other day that’s helping me transition back into eating less calories. Amy’s 3 Cheese Penne Marinara. Previously, I’d tried a few Amy’s products from the health food store, and had been exceedingly disappointed. By disappointed, I mean I threw 4/5ths of that crap in the trash. So I was a bit nervous about trying this one out, but I’m so glad I did!
The noodles are yummy and thick, the cheese is nommable, and the sauce (made with organic tomatoes) actually tastes like real pasta sauce! I’m very picky about spaghetti-type sauces, so I was shocked that I liked this so much. There’s also a nice helping of food here, considering the low calorie count of 270. I was very pleased! And it got bonus points for not having yucky chunks of tomato.
