Tomatoes have significant levels of Llycopene. Lycopene, one of the carotenoids, is known for its antioxidant properties.

Macaroni & Beef is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as the best homemade I eat Stouffer’s entrees on a daily basis (it beats cooking) and this dish just may be my favorite. The recipe is a perfect balance of sweet tomatoes and spices. There’s plenty of mean and the portion size is just right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious Stouffer brand has delicious products and this macaroni and beef isn't the exception. My family likes the tasty flavor and it's easy to make, my kids do it by themselves. The price is a great deal. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes legit! I typically don't do frozen meals, but for Stouffer's products. I find lots of other brands taste either bland or just gross in general. While I am a big fan of their family size lasagna, I couldn't help and resist to not try this Mac and beef out. With the current pandemic going on, the way my kids eat, I am willing to spend some money in the freezer meal aisle to stretch my money. The least to say, my family especially I, approve of this meal! I really like it! I will definitely add this to my grocery list from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kid friendly My son really enjoyed this frozen meal. I have a picky eater, he doesn't usually eat anything new. I'm so happy to have a new entree that I can now add to his kid friendly list. Quick and easy meal that taste really good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for office lunch. Stouffer's Macaroni & Beef is a single serving meal with pasta in a tomato meat sauce. The serving is a pretty standard size; it satisfied my hunger, but I didn't feel too full or uncomfortable after eating it. It is microwaveable, making it perfect for a workday lunch. I was surprised at how long the instructions said to microwave it: a total of SEVEN minutes! And yikes...it was HOT when I removed it from the microwave! The pasta tastes very fresh, there are actual real tomatoes, and there's a fair enough amount of meat in the sauce...for me, at least. Meat lovers will probably disagree. The taste overall was really good, but if I have one complaint, it is that the sauce is slightly too tomato-y. I wasn't blown away by this product, but I did enjoy it. I'm not sure I would eat it every day, but I would stock up with a few if I found them on sale. I would recommend to somebody who doesn't cook much or needs a decent-tasting hot lunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yum Whats not to love about a great macaroni and pasta dish. Reminds me of a chili mac dish i had once before. You can never go wrong with a Stouffer’s product. They are consistently good. I will try this is a larger size if available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tasty! I really like Stouffers macaroni & beef! It has great flavor, not pasty, and it doesn't feel like your eating a frozen meal. The texture is more like homemade! It tastes great. I will definitely be buying this again!
