There is a strong chemical smell, taste and aftertaste to this. I tried adding some tuna, salt and cayenne to try and drown it out but didn't really succeed. Forced myself to eat it and felt a bit sick afterwards. The odour and taste reminded me of the Cheese & Bacon Breakfast Eggs. I had the same reaction to those as well. Maybe it's whatever Exante are using as a cheese replacement. I don't know how I'm going to get through the remaining three I've got. Will not buy this one again.Report this review
Easy enough to make and smells ok. I washed each spoonful down with a glug of black coffee. First three mouthfuls were doable but it got increasingly more difficult to swallow. It is far too salty. I'm not sure if it filled me up or just put me off food for a few hours.Report this review
I looked like mushed up banana and kind of tasted like it too. Could have done putting more water in than packet specified and some seasoning too.Report this review
Love this product especially in the evening . Lots of black pepper and sometimes veg. Best to add a lil more water than advised when making it up.Report this review
Would not recommend, it has an awful strange smell and funny aftertaste. I managed to eat one but only after adding garlic and herbs... this didnt make it edible. Avoid.Report this review
The first time I tasted this I thought this is ghastly. Made as per instructions it was truly appalling. However after reading the reviews I decided to take the advice of a couple of reviewers and add additional water, black pepper and leave to stand for a further 5 minutes. It's now edible and filling. Having said that I wouldn't buy any more.Report this review
Surprised at the poor reviews of this one. It has a great taste. Certainly not as much pasta as the picture shows, but that probably a blessing as the pasta in all exante meals is a choice between eating 'very al dente' or 'soft and cold'. I really like the taste of this one, despite the smell being a bit off-putting after you start cooking it.

Just disgusting. Exante do lots of things well but cheesey/creamy tastes are not one of them. Avoid at all costsReport this review
Makes a large portion but it definitely does NOT look like the picture. There's hardly any pasta in it and lots of sauce but then it is a low carb meal! I added lots of black pepper and mixed herbs and it was OK but definitely not one of the best. I'd have it for variety as sometimes you need something creamy.Report this review
Did not enjoy this meal at all, smelt like sick, didn't taste good.Report this review
