First impressions:  Other than the snap peas being not quite as vibrantly green as they could be, this matches the packaging pretty well.  A co-worker who doesn’t eat frozen diet meals came over to investigate, saying, “That one smells really good.”  And it does.

Gustatory impressions: The only tiny complaint I have about this meal is, as usual, the pasta is more done than I’d like.  However, the plump little tortelloni, stuffed with cheese and mushrooms, are delicious.  Having both peas & snap peas in a meal seems like overkill, but it works and both are crisp and fresh-tasting.  The sun-dried tomatoes work well and the red peppers, usually a source of complaint from me, are inoffensive.  The sauce is a tiny bit thin, I think, but tastes great, creamy and a little bit peppery.  Altogether a pleasing taste experience.

Summary:  For the record, this is one of my favorite Lean Cuisines of all time, and has been so since the Market Collection first became available in my area.  I love mushrooms, and cheese, and snap peas, so this one’s right up my alley.  I also love the steam-in-bag meals because they’re SO EASY.  No complicated “remove film, cook for x minutes, stir, cook at 50% for X more minitues”, you just pop them in the microwave & that’s about it.  Hardest part is dumping them out of the bag.  Anyway, this particular meal is satisfying, delicious, and healthy, pretty much all you could ask for in a frozen diet meal!
