Weight Watchers (Smart Ones) Chicken Carbonara

I had no idea that Weight Watchers had their own brand of diet convenience meals until the hubby brought this home the other day. It's pretty good. It's got a 5 point value, 250 calories and 4.5 grams of fat but holy smokes- it's high in sodium, 660 mg (28% of RDV).

It's description: "all white meat, smoky turkey bacon, tender mushrooms and peas, and a basil garlic sauce over ribbons of linguini". I don't think that Lean Cuisine's (LC) version has turkey bacon, nor does it have peas (but it does have some red pepper). There aren't a ton of peas. In comparison LC's got 20 more calories, but a little less sodium (620 mg). Of the two, I'd recommend LC's version- however, if the WW version were cheaper one week, I'd buy it in its place.
