My husband and I both picked the HelloFresh meals this week. As usual, I leaned toward the "lower calorie" options, and he ignored that and went for this meal with pasta and sausage. At 910 calories per serving, not a meal I would typically choose, but I must say that this one made a LOT! I barely had half a serving, and I was full. So, the calorie count for half a serving wasn't bad at all. In fact, we had about twice as much as we needed, so lots leftover for lunches! I find that the pasta meals from HelloFresh generally have much bigger servings than the other meals.
The prep on this one wasn't bad--about 10 minutes, as the instructions read. I was able to put this one on the table in about 30 minutes. It was good--everyone liked it. But no one RAVED about, if you know what I mean. I might possibly order this one again, as it was easy and served a lot, but it would have to be on a slow menu week. I do love red bell peppers, and that gave this one a nice flavor. The tomatoes included were not quite ripe--maybe that would have given this dish the boost it needed.
So, order this one if you like pasta--it wasn't bad! Ratings from us were about a 7 all the way around. This meal was family friendly and you'll have enough for leftovers, if you're like me and don't like to think about what to make for lunch.
