It is rare that Angie buys any pre-packaged microwave meals...

she bought 4 of these last week....she loves them...

There is an Italian restaurant near us that has the best butternut squash ravioli, but only in Nov and Dec each year...we only eat there this time of year because we have several other Italian places we like better...she is hoping to make it there this week-end.

I LOVE these. The walnuts, the sauce, the snap peas, just awesome.

My very favorite Lean Cuisine is the Tortilla Crusted Fish (comes with a mexican-type rice). I also really like the Grilled Chicken Caesar (it's one of those "bowls"), the Santa Fe Style Rice And Beans and the Chicken In Peanut Sauce.

I ::um, let's see, EZMoney, Oohpujie:: fourth that! (Also Healthy Choice makes a good pumpkin-squash ravioli, anybody tried it?)

Also I like LC's salmon dishes (I just had the salmon and basil last night: wish the salmon pieces were a little bigger though), parmesan- and tortilla-crusted fish, Swedish meatballs, stuffed cabbage, veggie eggroll and spaghetti and meatballs. ETA 11.12: and the Santa Fe rice and beans (which is also a side dish on the tortilla-crusted fish and isn't there a Santa Fe chicken?)

I love the butternut squash LC's.

I hardly ever buy the meal things anymore...I just buy the paninis, flatbreads, and pizzas. I'll have to start buying the meals again. It surprises me how yummy they are, lol. They're also good for a craving fix (Chinese food, for example). I usually eat a LC every other day for lunch.

It is actually something I crave and get excited about eating!!!!!!!!! yummmy!!!!!!! I love the Lean Cuisine pizzas too! YUMMY!!!!!!!

I don't like much of the WW Smartones however they do have a veggies parmesan one that is totally delicious! It's just chicken with broccoli and bell peppers in an awesome creamy parmesan sauce. It's tough for me to find though, I rarely see it at the store :(

oooo! i havent seen that ravioli one! that sounds soooo good!
i love the sesame chicken and the spring rolls.
I have the tortilla crusted fish one in my freezer but have been scared to try it. Does it taste very fishy? I hate fishy fish. :)

Lean Cuisine must have reformulated the Butternut Squash Ravioli meal recently. It's now 280 cals vs. the 350 it was before, and only has 7 grams of fat vs. the 9 grams before. Still super tasty.

Agreed! So good. And so many veggies!

I have that one in my freezer! Have yet to try it.
My all-time FAVORITE Lean Cuisine is the Steak, Cheddar, and Mushroom Panini. I never wanted to buy them, cuz I thought they'd be soggy, but the tray really does make the bread taste toasted!
This one is reminds me of either a light version of a cheeseburger or the cheese steak hoagies they used to have at my school (grew up in PA).
I loooove it. I am going to make one right now, lol.

the butternut squash ravioli is my second favorite but it was a close call. I love the five cheese lasagna. I am always satisfied after eating this meal. I love the lean cusines. I always buy them when there on sale and I will be taking some home for the holidays so I don't have to eat my mother's fattening food.

I love the butternut ravioli. Someone asked about the healthy choice pumpkin ravioli. They were awful. The ravioli themselves were okay, a little stiff, but decent flavor. The sauce was horrible. Chuinks of stringy pumpkin and overly tart apples. Just wasn't a good flavor combo.

this one is my favorite!! I like that there's an extra serving of vegetables.

I picked one of these up today, I can't wait to try it! I'm going to wait for a good pasta craving and then break it out for lunch!

I dont typically eat LC's but I keep a couple in the freezer for emergencies and this is one of my favorites.

I have been looking high and low for this butternut squash ravioli--what a wonderful thing to have in a pinch! I cannot find it in any of my shops though. :(
