Review: This satisfied a weeknight craving for veggies tossed in fancy pasta, and I didn't have to linger over the stove sauteeing garlic and stirring a white sauce. Fluffy malfalda pasta and colorful carrots, asparagus and red peppers come frozen in a bag with a small pouch of garlic and parmesan cheese sauce -- tangy, not overpowering. Packed with vitamin A (70% of a day's requirement), and low in fat: Toss in cooked shrimp, chicken or even a can of red kidney beans (drained) for a 10-minute meal.
