surprisingly good

I don't normally buy ready meals. Only got this as I'd got a money off voucher. Really tasty- plenty of meatballs in a delicious sauce with perfectly cooked pasta. A good generous serving for two people.

Get something else

I am usually broadly in sync with the views here, but not this time. Pasta and meatballs is one of my favourite Italian dishes. The pasta is sloppy, there is far too garlic and there is too much salt. Note, I like garlic. This is poor food in a pretty box.
