#7 - Worst Supermarket Pasta
Stouffer's Restaurant Classics Fettuccini Alfredo (1 box)

Think of Alfredo sauce as the buzzkill of the pasta world. Its cream, butter, and/or oil base turns any pasta dish into a full-fat assault on your waistline. Even this relatively small portion of fettuccini Alfredo from Stouffer's packs more than half a day's saturated fat. Stouffer's Easy Express Skillet is a much more reasonable frozen dinner, and it highlights an important pasta point: The more veggies and lean protein, the less room for excess pasta and fatty sauces.
