Good frozen meals, not necessarily of the "healthy" variety.

So I'm looking for a new kind of frozen meal that I can take to work for lunch, when I'm in a pinch and don't have leftovers or makings for a sandwich/salad. Previously while losing weight I enjoyed the Healthy Choice Steamers, but now that I'm not really trying to lose anymore, the calorie counts in those and other frozen meals like Lean Cuisine or the generic store brand stuff isn't enough to fill me up. They range from 200-400 calories and I'm looking for something more in the 400-600 range.

So, I know there are tons of other non-healthy varieties of frozen meals, but here's the thing, I would still like it to be "healthy"ish, meaning, not too high on the sodium (I know hard to do with frozen meals) and good protein content. Not worried about fat content.

Does anybody have any suggestions of good frozen meals? My store does have a decent "natural food" section so they carry stuff like Amy's brand.
