Critique: Knorr beef flavor Pasta Sides

After picking up a bag of frozen meatballs at the local grocery store, I added Knorr's Beef Flavored Pasta Fetticcini Sides to my shopping basket as an impulse purchase. This stovetop, 230 calorie per cup side dish also advertised a Swedish meatball skillet recipe on the back side of the package that caught my eye and which looked pretty good, so I thought what the heck.

The directions on the package were pretty straight forward; just add the contents, a pat of butter and 2
cups of water to a medium sauce pan. Bring this to a brief boil, stir and then simmer for about seven minutes. The frozen meatballs were nuked as per package instructions and then added to the pasta. An easy greasy meal deal that serves 2!

I gave this meal deal a 7 on a scale of 10. The noodles were al dente and the sauce was also very good. The addition of the meatballs, however really helped to put this whole culinary affair over the top! The only downside of this dish was the high caloric content, but that's what portion control is all about!
