I’m not going to pretend to be one that takes myself very seriously in the kitchen… or ever for that matter, but definitely not in the kitchen! I mean, I think the pink chef’s hat and Jared’s unpictured amount of side eye explains everything, but I have no shame. I have my staple things that work, and I like to stick to them. This roasted garlic white bean alfredo recipe just so happens to be a new one I’ve tried out and love!

That said, good food is always important to me, but I honestly don’t cook that often. With our crazy work hours, travel schedule, and just plain being in the mood for different things for dinner, it doesn’t really make sense for either of us to spend a ton of time prepping and cooking meals day in and day out.

Having a quick and yummy meal on the ready for lunch or dinner without having to go out while we’re working is much more my jam. Hence our relationship (aka die hard fanship!) with Lean Cuisine.

And I know what you’re probably thinking — fake ingredients or artificial preservatives, etc. — but their Marketplace line uses recognizable ingredients, and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. To give you an idea of what kind of ingredients are included, they sent me a box with fresh ingredients to make the recipe that inspired their new limited-edition dish, the roasted garlic white bean alfredo recipe…

Their chefs get inspirations from across the globe to regularly develop new dishes for switching things up, which is why they have more than 30 dishes made with ingredients like those you could find in your pantry.

They’re also great when served alongside a side salad, veggies, or fresh fruit, so I served my pasta dish with a side spinach salad with fresh parmesan and a light vinaigrette dressing.

  1. I am looking for the nutrition information for the Roasted Garlic White Bean Alfredo receipe. Is it the same as the frozen one? Thank you

  2. I’m sorry, but this post is really odd. Why would they send you fresh ingredients to make the recipe? You never talked about what the LC meal tasted like or showed what it looks like after it’s cooked. The only thing this post did was make me want to make this recipe, not buy Lean Cuisine.

    • Hi Hailey! That’s exactly the point actually! The whole idea is to share how this particular Lean Cuisine meal actually IS this recipe that you’re now wanting to make! In order for it to become the packaged meal you’d buy in store, they use fresh, non-GMO ingredients and well-loved recipes, and I loved the idea of showcasing that fact by creating the recipe as people are used to seeing them online to tie the two together ;)

  3. I love these Lean Cuisine meals! I bought a few of them when we had just moved to our new place and were in the middle of unpacking – it was so nice to have something quick, ready, and healthier than pizza.
