    Good chewy pasta with surprisingly flavorless sauce. Based on the smell while cooking I was expecting this to be a lot more flavorful, but I had to add some extra seasonings for this to really taste like anything. It’s a good value though for the amount of food.

    I agree with the previous review
    It’s way too salty, not all that creamy and flavorful
    There’s also not that much food, the standard amount for Trader Joe’s frozen pasta + sauce dishes sure…
    It would probably be cheaper to make it yourself
    I think this product is based of a viral tiktok recipe, I was expecting better
    Sometimes there was a strong flavor in the sauce at some points that I couldn’t quite put my tongue on, but that was ehh as well

    I’m picky with my pasta and this is delicious! I added a little salt and the juice of half a lemon. So delicious! The noodles came out nice on the Al Dente side. Highly recommend for an easy dinner!

    Thought it was great, added cut up chicken pieces, side of peas….. very good.

    Not a very pleasant taste. Noodles itself cooked up ok but there was an overwhelming. artificial garlic taste. Will not be purchasing this item again. Bring back your Thai eggplant please!

    Picked this up because who doesn’t love garlicky noodles? I added a little bit of butter with a splash of heavy cream and a few shakes of pepper flakes. Came out amazing.!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! I thought I would just try it out so I bought only one bag because usually when I try something for the 1st time and I think I’m going to like it I buy multiples and end up not liking it.This however was not the case this time! I loved these! The only thing I did was add a little bit of salt and I sprinkled some green onions on top and I was– oh my gosh so delicious! In fact i’m going back to Trader joe’s tomorrow to buy a few more bags!

    It just goes to show you that everybody’s taste buds are different and you can’t always go by a review but it gives you some idea. I’m really glad I tried these!

    ok but needed some capers. butter would also be nice but there goes the calorie count

    This is delicious! I cooked shrimp on the stove, removed. Same pot I put in a bunch of frozen broccoli and the bag of pasta/sauce. Cooked according to instructions and then added the shrimp back in for a couple of the lasts minutes. So good!

    I like the taste – but the stovetop cooking directions are WRONG. Trader Joe’s test kitchen testers – try again. Perhaps needs more water at the start? I added cook time on low; nevertheless the noodles were overly ‘Al Dente’ (read tough). Look forward to this product cooking instructions improvement.

    The garlic flavor is VERY light, but I paired this with their Aisn Vegetable Stir Fry and it’s a home run! The sauce from the stir fry seasoned it perfectly.

    Neither garlicky or creamy. Where’s the umani? In fact the sauce is so watery I thought maybe it’s supposed to be a ramen soup thing. The noodles were OK but why pay that much for noodles? I gave it 2 chances. Will not buy again.

    I find these garlicky noodles delicious! Don’t understand the less than stellar reviews. Do need to cook a little longer than the packaging says, so the sauce thickens. Adding chopped veggies sounds a great idea – I’ll try that next time.

    These noodles are DELICIOUS!!! I made a chicken dish, with soup/gravy/sour cream topping and was looking for something to serve it with. I searched my freezer for something quick and decided on these noodles (Picked them up at Trader Joe’s to try out), and WOWZA! My husband and I went crazy over these! They are so quick and easy. I will definitely be stocking up! LOVE!!!
