Just found this gluten-free ravioli in my local grocery store.

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.

  1. Oh, YUM! If I wasn’t out of state at the moment, I’d be on my way to the store. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. I saw these in my local Safeway the other day. I noticed that the same company also makes non-gluten free pasta. Do you know if they are made on shared equipment? I haven’t checked it out yet. Fingers crossed!

  3. We love this! My entire family loves it and only 2 out of the 5 of us are gluten free. We used to eat it all the time but the local stores stopped carrying it. I even reached out to the company to try and find it and have had no luck. This is a great product and am hoping to find it again in the Chicago suburbs.

  4. Response from Pasta Prima . . . Decide for yourselves if it’s celiac safe!
