    Product Review: Gluten-free Cafe Fettucini Alfredo

    I am not normally one to depend on frozen prepared meals on a regular basis, however, I do like keeping them on hand for crazy schedule days. Having 2 active kids that are both involved in sports makes some of our afternoons & evenings very crazy. I try to plan meals in advance, as seen by my weekly menu plans, but there is always that one time when the inevitable happens and I end up scrambling to toss something together. It is days like these that the frozen meals come in very handy.

    Gluten Free Cafe sent me some complimentary coupons to give some of their frozen entrees a try. I picked up the Fettucini Alfredo for Jon, knowing how much he loves it, when we were on spring break in Atlanta. What I really like about Gluten Free Cafe items is that they seem to be available in most mainstream grocery stores.

    Jon really enjoyed this meal. I added some fruit, veggies & a leftover taco on the side, as he is a growing teenage boy. I tasted it before giving it to him and was impressed with the flavor. The sauce was creamy & the noodles were cooked perfectly, not overcooked.

    I have enjoyed another of Gluten Free Cafe’s meals a little over a year ago. I had the Pasta Primavera. While the Pasta Primavera was very good, it was not big enough for a meal for me. I added some additional veggies & a salad to complete the meal.

    Gluten Free Cafe is part of the Hain Celestial Family. Gluten Free Cafe is certified gluten-free. Some more info on GFC:
