Pasta Reviews: Compliments, ESM and TJK

Compliments is Sobey's microwave line I'm guessing.
  • Penne Pollo- First it takes four minutes to cook, which is longer than usual. And I also have to say that the packaging itself seemed to get soggy almost. There was a hole in the bottom as well. Anyway the pasta was good, and so was the sauce.
  • Swedish Meatballs- I was surprised by this one. I haven't really ever tried Swedish meatballs and they were good. The sauce was nice, the didn't skimp on anything.
  • Fettuccine Alfredo- Come out looking like crap but looks okay as you eat it. Pretty plain though. Noodles are kind of tough.
  • Macaroni & Cheese- Good, didn't skimp on the cheese, it was very nice.
  • I should note I didn't try the Spaghetti because I'm tired of eating microwave spaghetti that tastes like crap. So that wraps up my Compliments reviews, overall I enjoyed it more than Wal-Marts, so if you're a college student looking for cheap microwave pasta, go with Sobey's over Wal-Mart
Turtle Jacks- Four Cheese Cajun Chicken Penne
At first I was considering choosing another item. I'm not a fan of foods that pride themselves in burning my mouth. But it had a turtle beside it so it must be good. So the pasta is pretty good. I was surprised it didn't seemed to have much spice at all. My parents pointed that out as well (they both got it too) The serving was perfect and it tasted great. The chicken was pretty sparse but good though.
