When it comes to macaroni cheese nothing can be the taste of freshly cooked Mac and cheese with onions and tomatoes. But having a new addition to the family, the lack of sleeps been getting the better of me. So when I saw this macaroni cheese in the chilled meal aisle in Sainsbury I though it would be worth a try. Priced at only 75p for this 300 gram meal is excellent value for money (as i thought at the time). It's also freezable and suitable for vegetarians. This one small pack also contains a total of 466 calorie and a massive 10grams of salt! It's also contains no artificial colours or flavours. It's easy to cook. You can either cook it in the ...

Yesterday on my way to work I needed to get a quick snack for my lunch, I was in a rush so as I hurried into Sainsbury's this was one of the first ready meals I saw so I just picked it up and decided to have a try. Price: Sainsbury's Basic Macaroni Cheese is only 75p for 300g which is a great price, other non- basics range Macaroni Cheese are about £2 which makes this pretty good value. However it is about 100g smaller than the average size Macaroni Cheese Ready Meal. Packaging: The same plain Sainsbury's Basic's packaging is used on this item, as with many ready meals there's a cardboard sleeve so you can pull this off and have a look what the ...

I picked this up from the chilled aisle of Sainsburys last week. I'm not normally a huge eater of ready meals, but as I'm going on holiday soon, I wanted some food I could keep in the fridge to eat quickly and conveniently, but could shove into the freezer if for any reason it didn't get eaten . It comes with the normal 'Basics' orange and white packagaging, which is pretty dull but instantly recognisable, and has all the nutritional and ingredient info on it, as well as cooking instructions for both ovens and microwaves from either chilled or frozen. I opted of course for cooking int the microwave from chilled - when I'm hungry, I get very ... Read the complete review

I'm starting to wonder about your taste buds, Dooyooers. I am started to seriously wonder. Two stars, you say? TWO STARS?! THIS IS MADNESS! I can't be bothered to follow that line. You get the drift. I think it is rather sick that such a great product should get, er, two stars? C'mon, guys. Four, at least. MAYBE FIVE. I CAN'T DECIDE YET. I decided to pick this up because, although I'm not a fan of ready meals, I've always wanted to try macaronia nd cheese and I didn't want to make it if no one else would eat it with me unless I knew I'd like it...errr, long sentence, sorry. So I picked this up. It's very neat, and cheap. I believe it was 79p and this made me ... Read the complete review

Finding the perfect macaroni cheese has been a long standing ambition of mine! Ok sure I can make it easy enough but I'm someone who doesn't like fuss and I want something quick cos I'm to lazy to make much effort when it comes to cooking lately. On my travels on trying to reach perfection I've bought tins, ready meals and dried sachets of macaroni cheese oh and a thing like a pot noodle attempt. Now that was revolting! So I was rather excited the other day when I got in from perusing the shops for new clothes for a date in a cocktail bar to meet a nice a man and so much so I forgot to eat while I was out and missed breakfast and lunch, most unlike me! My Mum ... Read the complete review
