The other day I was in our regular ol’ grocery store picking up some necessities, when I came upon a product: Pasta Prima’s Gluten Free Five Cheese Ravioli. I bought it to have Emma try it.
I love ravioli. Meat filling is my (and my husband’s) favorite over cheese, but apparently people like cheese ravioli because that is all I can seem to find (whether gluten free or not).
My daughter Emma has celiac and really hasn’t tried ravioli before. The rest of our family is not gluten free. So the only ravioli pasta we find is in the freezer section and isn’t fabulous. I have not ventured into the “making my own pasta” area either.
The Pasta Prima’s Gluten Free Ravioli is in the refrigerated section. I found mine on an end cap.
Tuesday night I was making pasta. There are only 8-9 raviolis in the package…so I thought I would just make them up on the side and just let everyone try one or two. This ravioli only needed about 3 minutes in boiling water to cook.
I have to say, this gluten free cheese ravioli was sooo good! The pasta was light but didn’t fall apart and the cheese was super creamy inside. Other non-GF freezer raviolis I have tried have thicker pasta, which I don’t really love.
Emma thought it was fine, but instinctively said “Do they have these with a meat filling instead of cheese?” I guess the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
So the big test was later in the evening when my husband ate his dinner which also had a few of the raviolis. He said if he wasn’t told they were gluten free he never would have known. He agreed they were very good but also said…he likes meat better. Yeah…yeah….yeah.
I found the gluten free cheese ravioli in Minnesota at my Cub Foods on special 2 for $6. Which I thought was a pretty good deal. I wonder if they would be good deep fried with a little marinara….hmmmm.
