CN Review: 3-Course Meal Picks

by  Rekaya Gibson on February 25, 2017

I like good food fast. The products below create a quick 3-course meal that packs flavor and convenience without breaking the bank. Now, who doesn’t like the sound of that?

Explore Cuisine Organic Red Lentil Spaghetti

Organic Red Lentil Spaghetti resembles the flavor of the actual bean yet has the versatility of everyday pasta. This gluten-free vegan noddle pairs well with homemade tomato sauce, fresh basil, and parmesan cheese. The Red Lentil Spaghetti contains organic red lentil flour (73 percent) and organic brown rice flour, offering a healthier alternative to consumers.

Hillshire Snacking Small Plates

Tuscan Flair offered perfect portions with flavorful options, taking my palate on a European journey. It includes barrel-smoked natural chicken breast, Monterey Jack cheese with garlic and herbs, amaretto-flavored chocolate almonds, and rosemary and olive-oil-flavored crisps. Simply put, Tuscan Flair is the ultimate snack: salty, sweet, and good. The Hot Calabrese Salame with Natural Gouda Cheese and Toasted Rounds provides an impromptu charcuterie board for one without all the fuss. This small plate paires well with white wine. Life seems better with crunchy toast topped with fresh cheese.

Size: 2.76 oz. tray
Retail Price: $3-$4
Available: Walmart, Target, and various supermarkets nationwide

Patti LaBelle Banana Pudding

It’s not your mama’s banana pudding, but it might be the best store-bought brand currently on the market. The vanilla wafer topping and the crumbly crust succinctly situated between smooth layers of whipped cream and banana pudding comes cold and ready to devour. This sweet goodness causes an addiction after the third bite—beware. Add sliced fresh bananas for the full experience and to satisfy nagging cravings.

Size: 36 oz.
Retail Price: $9.98
Available: Walmart stores nationwide
