  • I know people have said it before, but I love what you have done with your nails. ��������������
    I can’t believe how cheap the food is in the US.

    And yes, I know it’s Mrs Wolfe Pit hands we actually see.

  • You wanna try some really good microwave food? Find the “devour” meals they have more flavor and quality than any other I’ve ever had.

  • Yes! I love being able to see you! Everything looked so delicious! I don’t know about your ability to be with your family, but what about doing the same thing with them as you did with Chris’ family? Maybe Chris could do the presentation for your family like you did for his? Thanks for being so great!

  • I tried this meal when i first saw it at the grocery store. I am always willing and eager to try something new, so i bought this. I thought it was very tasty, but the sauce was a little too spicy for me and i couldn’t eat the whole thing. I loved the meatballs, so i picked out the meatballs and skipped the pasta [even though i did try to eat as much of it as possible-but it started a fire inside my mouth, so i only ate about half of it] It was okay, but i will probably never buy it again.

  • I LOVEEEE Broccolini/Rapini; whenever I buy it I must buy double…one bunch to eat as it cooks and the rest for the dish!�� These were awesome recipes that I will add to my “to try dishes”. Thanks for sharing.����������

  • In a crockpot with grape jelly and bbq sauce was the ONLY time ive had frozen Meatballs and actually liked them. Any other way, they are just gross.
    I would definitely be the hungry line worker.

  • The meatball was too hot to shove in my mouth whole.
    Next it was a mouth-full of balls.
    I was enjoying this meal more than i should have.

  • Let’s just get this straight. Most of these nutritionists don’t know jackshit. People need calories to survive and so long as you get decent amounts of exercise in your life you won’t get fat. If your set on calories then it’s just nutrition which you technically don’t need any vegetables or fruits for. I don’t care what anyone tells you, I eat whatever the hell I want and take a pill or two every morning to make sure I’m getting what vitamins and minerals I need and I feel great. I’m not overweight and I love to run / bike. ( just needed to get that out hate these idiots who don’t know their head from their ass and people that are gullible enough to buy into their shit.

  • Dear TheWolfePit-I bought this the other day…and didn’t like it. My dog wouldn’t even eat it. I was raised in a multi-ethnic area and the Bolognese, Sicilians, and Neapolitans who lived there each had their versions of pasta varieties with meatballs ot meat sauces. So, I’m spoiled when it comes to Italian food, and I know it. But when even my dog (who will share just about anything I’m eating) turned up his nose at this, I took the hint.

  • High in sodium and full of TVP, however let us not forget the ‘mechanically separated meat’. MSM is “a paste-like meat product produced by forcing pureed or ground beef, pork, mutton, turkey or chicken, under high pressure through a sieve or similar device to separate the bone from the edible meat tissue. It is sometimes called White Slime. The process entails pureeing or grinding the carcass left after the manual removal of meat from the bones and then forcing the slurry through a sieve under pressure. This puree includes bone, bone marrow, skin, nerves, blood vessels, and the scraps of meat remaining on the bones. The resulting product is a blend primarily consisting of tissues not generally considered meat along with a much smaller amount of actual meat (muscle tissue).” Sounds very appetizing.

  • All of the recipes looked so satisfying ��I post vegan food videos on my channel as well. Feel free to check them out for even more inspiration. ��

  • Ill tell you what’s more consistent than Banquet’s meatball count the quality and format of Larry’s videos. Some things are good just the way they are

  • I’ve become vegetarian as of early may 2020 and slowly merging to vegan…. I found the most DELICIOUS shredded mozzarella at Walmart. It’s made by GOOD PLANeT. You guys have to try it… it’s melty and so good! It’s vegan and soy free…

  • I have a vegan meatball marinara and honestly nowadays most meatballs are so bad quality the vegan meatballs are far superior to the low quality meatballs you typically get when living on a budget and not being able to splurge on the pricier meat. Also spicy tomato sauce makes anything better.

  • Except we still don’t know the ratio of chicken to pork to beef to TVP so I guess it various on which meat slurry is cheapest at the time.

  • Either Banquet and other companies have seen TheWolfePit videos and the need to step up their game or Mr. Wolfe Pit has done so many of these, he’s grown tolerant of the TVP. I hope it’s the former; that gives me hope.

  • Recipe aside, she needs to learn how to flip burgers; you leave it to cook, flipping it constantly before it cooks to a solid hold causes it to fall apart. She probably didn’t even check to open the liquid smoke, i only saw air.

  • Haven’t tried this mega bowl yet, but it looks great. Haven’t had a banquet meal I didn’t like yet. (though tbh the turkey medallions meal is definitely the worst imo)

  • I love corn on the cob I want to try where you do it with milk? Ha not sure about that tho:) Also we like cucumber salad! I can’t wait to try those muffins tho……mmmmm♥️!


  • Now, that’s exactly what I needed after starting to run low on ideas which would suit my non-vegan fam:D Inspiring and creative but genuine and doable recipes is what I love!
    Also, don’t worry about the videos not being “as usual”! We love these vlog-type ones as well!
    Sending you lots of love!
    Stay safe and have a great day or night!

  • I enjoyed cooking along with you, yes, most definitely. Thank you! I love the potato salad and variation of type sides. The squash and zucchini looked great!

  • How can Banquet make decent filling bowl meals that are edible but their 1.00 meals are terrible. Inconsistent company standards?
    15 meatballs in a 2.00 bowl meal?
    A tiny little party of Salisbury steak in a 1.00 meal?

  • jasmine!! thank you for helping promote your cousin that sells plants. i’ve already picked up 5 plants from him, going back for more next week lol ��

  • Thank you so much for reading out all the nutrition facts, i mean i don’t know how i would possibly be able to determine what was in their otherwise. It’s not like theirs a video with the info clearly visible already. If you didn’t tell me how much trans fat was in each meal i think i would probably die

  • So I went out to Walmart and got a bunch of these. Had one earlier tonight. Cooked it in the oven, it was okay. It is a good amount of food for the price, but an 8 out of 10? For the value, I say a 5 out of 10 tops. I thought I could trust your opinion, but there is no way this meal was an 8, what would be a 10, a can of spaghettio’s with little meatballs? The methodology is backfiring, I am not going to buy anything you recommend anymore. Everyone else, this is Banquet Spaghetti and meat balls, except with Penne pasta instead of spaghetti. It is not bad, but really it is not that good. Raise some standards back to where they were when you started.

  • Hi..newbie.too.channel��❗����
    ThAnk.u.for SHARING❗

  • Why do they always put cheese on dishes like this? I hate cheese. Make the cheese an option. Put it in a packet, to add if desired. Otherwise, I’m not in the market for the dinner.

  • I am going to a small family cookout on Saturday. I am totally making that zucchini/squash dish. Looks so healthy AND delicious. Thanks!

  • Those sides look so good!! I can’t wait to try them. I too enjoy corn salad or a fresh cucumber salad with my barbecue. I would love to see you make them. Love that hair color on you. It was my intentions to tell you that in the last video. Tfs ��

  • I can’t wait to try these! I have tried a lot of your recipes and we have loved them all! I finally found those dumplings(B) for your chicken noodle soup and OMG �� It was so good! Please keep sharing!!
    Love seeing your vlogs and cooking videos! Your family is so much fun!

  • It doesn’t look a goddamned thing like it does on the box, just liquidy ass red sauce, macaronis, and meatballs, no cheese or herbs or anything, and spicy af.

  • Eating something like this on occasion would be okay. It sure comes in handy. I have learned to do a combo cooking method on these frozen meals. Part microwave, finish in the oven.

  • Everything looks wonderfully delicious, Jen! That potato salad is a must! Thank you so much for all the great ideas! Love
    your channel ❤️

  • Everything looks so delicious, Jen, as always!! Had to let you know I made your smoked Mac & cheese & hubs made @brewgrillrepeat ribs this weekend. We were stuffed!! ���� sooo good! I’m addicted to the wedge salads, too! Along w Jessica D we need a wedge salad club ���� ☀️

  • I would love to see your set up or packing the camper for a trip. Seems like I always forget something. And maybe a clean once I get home video

  • I am looking for Summer recipes that doesn”t require turning the oven on other than pasta, macaroni and tuna salad. I don’t like to build up a lot of heat the house. Can you help me out????

  • For what it is, this looks pretty good, and I would buy it except I’m on a 1500 mgm sodium restricted diet per my Doctor…why must all these frozen convience foods be so high in sodium? I hate to cook and would like to buy these items, but they make it impossible….any thoughts, any one??

  • My fiance and I have been vegan since February and I’ve cooked so many amazing meals but I feel like I’ve hit a wall on what to make us. So thank you so much for this ��

  • I will be trying these receipes. I just made your sweet tea receipe yesterday. It was delicious. And my company loved it to. They wanted to recipes. You are a delicious cook. Thank you for sharing!

  • I love burgers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I make sautéd zucchini with leftover grilled corn, sprinkle salt and pepper then add a little parmesan cheese at the end. So quick and really yummy.

  • Baked beans is one of my family’s favorite ���� I love that potatoes salad recipe I am going to try that!!! I love your videos!!!!

  • Kristen how the hell do you even eat that lol it’s soo bad bet I could give you a few good ideas scorpion peppers are the best lmao

  • I THOUGHT you ate stuff so I didn’t have to? I just tried that nasty crap, and It sucked! The worst part is that I bought two because of your video. At least you were right about Stouffer’s meatloaf and a few of their other TV dinners.

  • That’s awesome that his family was down for some vegan food! I’ve been in too many situations where there was so effort made to make anything I could eat. Love the video as usual! Xo

  • I guess I missed the ‘dynamite” word in the title. I tried this and would really have liked it except for the high (to me) level of cayenne in the sauce. Larry probably wouldn’t notice it because he likes spicy food, but for my delicate Norwegian palate, it’s too much. I didn’t think about it because Italians aren’t known for having hot pepper in their food. I watch for that with Mexican, Asian and Indian food. If it wasn’t for that, this would have been a very good, affordable meal. Very filling too. I had 12 meatballs in mine.

  • I enjoy these more natural videos. If it helps you guys have a more regular life, then I’m all for it! You guys work so hard and it’s important to still be present, especially around friends and family. Also these dinners look delicious!! Chris’ parents are awesome for cooking quality meals.

  • Well you inspired us!,and we ate Dollar tree food only for 24 hrs! Our Vlog from it gives tribute to you and in done in a similar to your style for props! If you have time stop by and check it out it Premiere’s tomarrow 7/24 at 6pm E.S.T.

  • You should try for us the frozen microwave dish “Kid Fresh spaghetti loops Pasta ‘n Meat Sauce.”

    It’s a circular bowl, yet the instructions say “peel corner of film to vent.”

  • So sweet his family is so accommodating, I struggle with that in my family. My bf and I usually have to just bring food for ourselves, but one time I brought a vegan lasagna and my 80 something year old grandma said it was amazing!

  • Y bro you guys playing with food…. I always watch your videos but this disappointed mee sorry brooo plz try to avoid this type of content brooo plz there are lots of human being die without geting the food you are wasting so plz avoid this type of content

  • Just got a couple of these… had 14 balls each and was spicy af… like wtf spicy, I think they did not mean for it to be this spicy

  • Such a wonderful video! Were you so excited when you thought to bake the potato salad and it turned out amazing? That was SUCH a good/unique tip! ����

  • As there are a lot of bell peppers in the supermarkets at the moment I took some 3-2-1 burger mix (3 cups of beans, two cups of cooked rice and one cup of oats with seasoning) and stuffed some halves of red bell peppers which I had blanched for 35 minutes in boiling water first. They came out really well and I had the extra for lunch the next day cold with salad and they were delicious both hot and cold.

  • Hey Jen your voice is very comforting I found the candles in Walmart and I bought a noodle board for my stove from watching your videos keep up your good content enjoy y’all forth of July ��

  • Checking the temp with a meat thermometer after every dish after it’s been nuked and steaming for 10 minutes specially for a professional ghetto chef is unnecessary and listing the shit ingredients for 4 minutes another waste of everyone’s time. After watching a few of your reviews I’m now bored and going to move on

  • wow you people are so critical.. this woman IS a Registered Dietician and a Register Nutritionist.. she knows more about foods and their energy than anyone of your Doctors..
