Quick and easy. I bought these while staying in a holiday unit for easeof not having to buy a heap of individual ingredients. While they took a lot longer to cook in the microwave than stated on the packet, they were very tasty with just the right amount of butter and herbs. They are expensive to buybut there’s always a price to pay for convenience! In the setting of being on holiday andnot wanting to buy a lot of ingredients, but still wanting a home-cooked meal, I’d buy them again. Otherwise I couldn’t justify the price.
