Veggie dishes offered as flavorful sides


February 02, 2000|By Joanne E. Morvay

* Item: Birds Eye vegetables with sauce

* What you get: 2 (1-cup) servings

* Cost: About $1.35

* Preparation time: 4 to 5 minutes in microwave, 6 to 7 minutes boiled in water on stove top

* Review: Birds Eye is billing the latest in its frozen vegetable line as versatile and convenient. Advertising urges consumers to try these four frozen side dishes as a quick meal for one or as an easy and flavorful accompaniment at the family dinner table. The Roletti Pasta and Vegetables includes broccoli, carrots and corn in a very mild garlic and herb sauce. The Roasted Potatoes & Broccoli was sturdier -- gold potatoes and broccoli topped with a hearty Cheddar cheese sauce. There's also a Gold and White Corn Blend in butter and Radiatore Pasta and Vegetables in a white Cheddar sauce.
