Review: Mrs. Paul's has two new meal kits: Shrimp Linguine and a similar shrimp stir-fry. We tried the linguine, which included vegetables and a scampi seasoning. On a positive note: The linguine defrosted easily and held its shape well. The shrimp were firm. The vegetables were perfectly crisp-tender. And basil added a nice pesto flavor. On a not-so-positive note, the garlic in this dish was overpowering. I was still tasting it a day later. Eat at your own risk.
