      The main complaint I had with the last Café Steamers entrée I tried was the angel hair pasta. I prefer heartier pasta shapes, like rotini or farfelle. I wanted to try Chicken Pesto Classico because the pasta was rotini and I love pesto. Also, from the picture, this seemed to have more vegetables than the last one I tried. The calorie count looked good – just a little over 300 calories – and the

        and vegetables were cooked nicely and the combination of zucchini and chicken was a good one. But the sauce was a bit disappointing. The basil flavor was good but the sauce lacked salt. I was tempted to add my own. Because there wasn’t enough salt to bring out or enhance the natural flavors of the chicken and zucchini, the entrée tasted kind of bland. Healthy Choice needs to make some improvements with this entrée.
