I enjoy trying many different brands and types of frozen dinners. Recently, I came across Banquet Macaroni & Beef In Tomato Sauce Dinner, in the frozen meal section at my local Super Wal-Mart store. I decided to purchase this dinner, try it and write a product review about my experience. Here is what I discovered!
I discovered that Banquet Macaroni & Beef In Tomato Sauce Dinner is very affordable and budget friendly. I purchased this dinner for only one dollar. The picture of this meal on the front of the box, looked very tempting. I love beefaroni and similar dishes and this product looked very much like that type of dish. This meal has macaroni, tomato paste, seasoned cooked beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic, anchovies and chili pepper in it, among other ingredients. That all sounded very good to me.
Banquet Macaroni & Beef In Tomato Sauce Dinner is very easy to prepare. You can cook this dinner in the microwave or in a conventional oven. The conventional oven preparation takes around thirty-five minutes. I chose to cook this meal in my microwave. I only had to cut a slit in the film cover, cook on high for two minutes, stir, replace cover and continue cooking on high for three more minutes. I then let this meal stand for two minute before removing cover and serving. Remember to be very careful while removing the covering, as this dinner is hot.
This meal smelled really good while cooking. When I tasted Banquet Macaroni & Beef In Tomato Sauce Dinner, I did like it. This meal is much better if you add some cheddar cheese to it, in my opinion. Alone, it is OK although it is nothing really special. The macaroni is very tender, lots of tomatoes and beef. For the money, this dinner is worth it. I do like the Banquet lasagna dinner much better than this one. Banquet Macaroni & Beef In Tomato Sauce Dinner is a low cal and easy to prepare product that I am glad that I tried. I enjoyed writing this product review about it. I rate this meal three stars out of five stars. But, you better like anchovies. Seriously. Think I am kidding? Read on.

Just why are there anchovies in this dinner? Beats me. I could have done without them. That is just my opinion. For those who like anchovies with their pasta, they will like this. Very unforgettable surprise, this dinner has. Mama Mia.
