The entire meal was delicious, healthy, and we spent some quality family time talking about Italy. My husband was telling my daughter about why the foods we chose were important in Italian culture, and he even tried to speak with some Italian flare as his grandparents sounded. She thought that was cool and wished we had Italian accents. My husband and I have been to Italy together twice. We hope to take the kids there one day! We would love to show them around the sites and see the way the Italians live. Our favorite part was that they seemed to shop daily for fresh foods and ingredients at the local markets. They could even walk to the markets from their houses. We loved that!
Here you can see our plated dinner. The kids enjoyed the Spaghetti and Meatballs and we had the Chicken Parmesan with our side Garlic Garbanzo Salad. For dessert we had the Skinny Cow ice cream! YUM! And like I said, our meal total was 570 calories! You can’t beat that!
So now we’ve learned a little about Italian cuisine with yummy Lean Cuisine Italian meals, and next we’ll have to see what to get for an Estonian meal for my daughter. I will need to dig up my grandmother’s recipes.
