Sponsored Post: Macaroni Grill Frozen Entrees


This post has been sponsored by Macaroni Grill through My Blog Spark. I was sent the Grilled Chicken Florentine variety, in addition to a serving bowl and pasta tongs. This product review is 100% my opinion.

I was sent two separate packages for this review.  The first box contained the serving bowl and pasta tongs.  The second box contained the food packed in dry ice.

I don't eat frozen meals often, but when I received the offer to review Macaroni Grill's new frozen entrees I accepted the offer.  Since everyone has different taste when it comes to food, I decided to invite a friend over for dinner.

The directions state that it can be cooked on the stove or microwave.  For this review, I decided to cook it stove top.  When I first opened the package, I was skeptical by the appearance as it was frozen in a giant blob.  Once it was sitting on the stove top for a while, it began to look more appetizing.

I thought that the sauce tasted really good and although I used skim milk, it was still extremely creamy.  A nice thing from the packaging is "chief tips" which give you some ideas of changing the meal slightly. The recommendation suggested adding diced tomatoes to the dish before serving so I purchased a can of tomatoes. My friend liked it better with the tomatoes while I preferred it without tomatoes.  I haven't been to an actual Macaroni Grill in a while to be able to compare this frozen entree to the restaurant's entree however I did enjoy it.

If you are a fan of Macaroni Grill, I think you'll enjoy their frozen entrees. There are currently four varieties available:
  • Grilled Chicken Florentine
  • Basil Parmesan Chicken
  • Roasted Garlic Shrimp Scampi
  • Spicy Italian Sausage Pomodoro

You can head over to Macaroni Grill at Home to print a coupon for $1.50 off a frozen entree. If you prefer to eat in the restaurant, register on Macaroni Grill's website, you will get a coupon for $5 off two entrees at the restaurant.

had this dish last night and hated it. I thought it was about as bland as it could be. Way way too much cream sauce.

We do eat a fair amount of frozen entrees in bags like this and this was by far the least favorite.

I'm sorry that you did not like it. I really enjoy cream sauces and thought it had a good flavor. I wonder if the type of milk you use makes a difference. I used skim milk and didn't think there was too much sauce. Maybe whole milk or cream would make the sauce too creamy.
