Macaroni Grill Frozen Meal--Review and Giveaway

Giveaway is now closed
As a member of My Blog Spark, I was recently offered a chance to try one of Romano's Macaroni Grill frozen complete meal for two. Macaroni Grill is my absolute favorite Italian chain restaurant, when we lived in Colorado Springs we ate there almost every week--we even had a favorite waitress and would request to sit in her section when we could. She was the best at that writing their name upside down on the paper table topper thing that they do--and the best waitress, too! We haven't live where there was a Macaroni Grill in a couple of years, so I was really eager to try these frozen meals.

The one I received was Grilled Chicken Florentine. All I had to do to make this was open the bag, dump the entire thing into a non-stick skillet, add 1/2 cup of milk, cover, and cook on medium heat about 15 minutes. The picture really doesn't do this justice---it was delicious! The bow-tie pasta came out tender but not mushy, the spinach wilted down just enough, there was plenty of chicken in it, and it made it's own tasty alfredo-type sauce as it cooked. I would definitely buy this and make it again. It's just the right amount for two people--and with the addition of a salad and some rolls or breadsticks you could easily have a nice meal for two on the table in no time.
And now on to the giveaway--besides the frozen meal (which came packed in dry ice, by the way) I also received this nice stoneware pasta plate and extendable tongs (packed separately) and one of you can receive the thing (although the meal may be different one), courtesy of Romano's Macaroni Grill and My Blog Spark.

The giveaway will run from today until next Monday night, September 13th, at 6:00 p.m. All you have to do to enter is leave me your name, email address, blog url (optional) and a comment telling me who you'd share your meal-for-two with--would you use this for a special meal for you and your significant other--share it with one of your friends--have a special mom-and-me night with one of your kids--on the form below. The winner will be chosen at random and notified via email. Except for the winner's name and shipping information, no other information will be shared or used for any purpose other than this giveaway.

Until next time, good (easy) cooking, and good eating!
