Macaroni Grill Giveaway

Most nights I try to cook dinner for fiancé so when he comes home or soon after he gets home he has a nice meal waiting for him after a long day. I am a wife in training!

Sometimes he comes home and I have created a feast for him and other days I have thrown something quick and easy together and still other days I have got nothing for him! It’s a guessing game what he will come home to every night – whether he will be fed a feast or not at all!

Whenever I go to the grocery store I always try to get a few things that I can make easily in a pinch.

Enter Romano’s Macaroni Grill frozen entrées.

I was recently sent a sample of Romano’s Macaroni Grill frozen entrée from MyBlogSpark to try out. I got to try out the new Basil Parmesan Chicken complete meal for 2.

I am not the biggest fan or frozen meals, but I think they are ok every once in a while. Everything in moderation, right?!

This frozen meal consisted of grilled white meat chicken, broccoli florets and tomatoes with cavatappi pasta tossed in a creamy basil parmesan sauce. All I had to do was to add a little bit of milk and then cook while stirring for 15 minutes until the vegetables were cooked and the pasta was tender.

One thing I do enjoy about frozen meals like this is that you can control some aspects of your meal. I was able to choose the milk I used and I also added a few extra fresh vegetables to the mix!

While the vegetables cooked the packaged called to cover the pan being used. Clearly I need to add a big saucepan with a lid on our wedding registry ASAP!

I also chopped up a little French bread to go with our feast.

After 15 short minutes our meal was complete!

    So funny, I have that same Ikea frying pan and the same wok I think. It came with a really flimsy tin lid that got smashed 2 seconds after opening it. Your dinner looked yummy- my hubby loooves pasta so I may have to keep some frozen meals on hand for when I'm out of town

  • Reply Danielle September 23, 2010 at 1:57 pm


    I've passed these in the frozen section a few times now and have been tempted to give them a try. I also like to try and make dinner for my fiancé, but I agree – some nights it's just too much work with running, school and work! This would defintely be a nice alternative on one of those extra busy nights 🙂

  • Reply Jacqui September 23, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    I love quick meals like this on nights hubby and I have to both work late!

  • Reply angel September 23, 2010 at 3:26 pm

    I would love to try Macaroni Grill!

  • Reply Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat September 23, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Oh I love Macaroni Grill, despite how unhealthy some of their dishes can be (you'd sometimes think that they've never heard of veggies!). I'd love to try out this frozen meal, though!

  • Reply Holly September 23, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    I use another pan as a lid too. I guess it works because your dinner looked great!

  • Reply susitravl September 23, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    I live with a houseful of pasta lovers. I'm sure we would enjoy this.


  • Reply Amy September 23, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Yum, your pasta looks so good! Nice giveaway.

    Sounds like something I'd like to try! We're on a budget so winning would be great.
