Weight Watchers from Heinz Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Pasta

This is a frozen ready meal from the Weight Watchers from Heinz Signature Range. It contains a delicious combination of marinated chicken mini fillets in a creamy mushroom sauce with penne pasta.

At 330g, this ready meal is ideally suited for serving one person but could stretch to two when accompanied by vegetables or salad. The whole meal is worth 9 ProPoints, 346 calories. and it gets three green traffic lights!

I bought a couple of these meals to divide between four people. They’re easy to cook in the oven or microwave from frozen. For best results you’re advised to cook it in the oven, which I did.
Still frozen
It smells heavenly as it's cooking and we couldn't wait to taste it. Each pack contains two decent sized chicken portions together with penne pasta in a delicious, creamy mushroom sauce. Although I don’t generally eat pasta dishes, I did try some of this found the taste exceptionally good. It’s very rich and flavoursome with garlic, onion, mustard and peppers all contributing to the overall flavour.

After cooking
It definitely has a more grown up taste and it’s easy to see why this meal has been given the status of ‘Signature Dish’. It went down well with everyone in my family apart from my youngest, who at 8 years old, would happily live on pasta if she could. But the flavour on this dish was a bit too strong for her.

You can find Weight Watchers from Heinz in the freezer cabinets in larger supermarkets.
