Macaroni Grill Frozen Entree Review and Giveaway--CLOSED

My family is a huge fan of Macaroni Grill restaurants.   We have one near us and we usually eat there for Valentine's Day, our anniversary, birthdays, etc.   We love both the food and the service.  I even had an opera student who was a server sing happy birthday to me once!


Well now Macaroni Grill has come out with a line of frozen entrees that you can serve in your home.  While no one will sing to me while I dine, it will certainly be easier and cheaper to whip up some Macaroni Grill at home!   I was recently offered the chance to review the Grilled chicken Florentine, with grilled white chicken and spinach, along with farfalle pasta tossed in a delicious creamy parmesan cheese and garlic sauce. 





My frozen entree also included a pasta serving bowl and pasta serving tongs as pictured to your left.  









I whipped up this entree one evening by adding only1/3 cup of milk to the package ingredients to make the tasty meal on the right!   I think it looks pretty in the serving bowl and with the tongs too!   My family all loved it.  My husband asked where I could buy them, my daughter loved that it included spinach in it, and my son wiped up the last of the sauce with some garlic toast we served with it.   I loved that my family members were all happy and it only took me about 15 minutes to whip up the whole meal! The bag says it serves two.   We served all four of us although the portions were a tad on the smaller side.




To add even more Italian flare to your relaxing nights at home, check out the additional varieties of Macaroni Gill frozen trees available this summer in your grocers freezer case.  They also have a Basil Parmesan Chicken entree with grilled white meat chicken, broccoli florets and tomatoes with cavatappi pasta tossed in a flavorful creamy basil parmesan sauce.    The Roasted Garlic Shrimp Scampi and Spicy Italian Sausage Pomodoro varieties are also perfect for bringing the romantic aromas of Italy into your home.


One of my lucky readers is going to get the opportunity to receive the same prize pack that I got to review.  The Macaroni Grill prize pack includes one Macaroni Grill Frozen Entree sample, in addition to a serving bowl and pasta tongs.  You'll love it!

You can click HERE for info on all four of the current frozen entries.    You can click HERE to visit their site for a $1.00 coupon for the dry dinner kits or $1.50 off the frozen entrees.


I am grateful that Macaroni Grill provided me with the  free product, information, and prize pack through MyBlogSpark.  All the opinions are my own.
