Costco Duso’s Roasted Garlic Chicken Tortelloni Review

If you’re looking for a quick, easy-to-prepare, hearty comfort meal, this Duso’s Roasted Garlic Chicken Tortelloni might be for you. Just boil some water, throw it in, drain it, add a sauce and you’re good to go. The package makes it look like the tortelloni is loaded with chicken, so if you add a side salad or something, you should have a fairly balanced meal, right? Unfortunately, you’re going to be disappointed when you actually try this pasta.

Other noodle and pasta products from Costco that I like are the Chickapea Pasta, Banza Pasta, Beecher’s World’s Best Mac and Cheese, Rana Tagliatelle Seasoned White Chicken & Mushroom Sauce, Kirkland Signature Chicken Chow Mein, Kirkland Signature Yakisoba Stir Fry, Ajinomoto Vegetable Yakisoba and the Kirkland Signature Meat Lasagna.

I won’t be buying this again. I pictured the filling being chunks of all-white chicken breast meat but instead, it’s like a chicken pate or paste. There’s only a tiny amount of it too in each tortelloni.

This tortelloni doesn’t have much filling, it’s quite doughy.

The filling has a pretty noticeable garlic flavor and is a bit dry. You don’t taste chicken at all in the filling, just the garlic. The actual pasta is really plain and very doughy. There’s way more pasta than there is filling.

The tortelloni paired well with a tomato sauce and I think it would also go okay with an alfredo sauce.

The three-pack of tortelloni costs $17.49 Canadian, which isn’t expensive for three meals worth of fresh pasta but the taste matches the price.

The tortelloni is made with cage-free eggs and chicken breast meat.


There are three individual packs of tortelloni in the pack, to remove one pack you just cut it off with scissors. The pasta needs to be kept refrigerated and the best-before date is almost two months from when we purchased it.

If you’re not going to make the pasta before the expiry date you can freeze it in the packaging it comes in. It’s very simple to make, all you do is cook it in gently boiling water for 7 to 8 minutes.

A quick and convenient meal.

The internal temperature should be 74 degrees Celsius when it’s done and leftovers should be refrigerated immediately.



One and a half cups of pasta contains 390 calories, four grams of fat, 68 grams of carbohydrates, four grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, 20 grams of protein and 640 milligrams of sodium. That’s quite a bit of carbohydrates and sodium but the fat content is quite low.

Nutrition facts.


The ingredients list actually looks really reasonable with everything I’d expect to see in this pasta and not a lot of extra additives or chemicals. The pasta contains wheat and egg.

There’s no dairy listed on the ingredients, if you’re sensitive to dairy.

  1. Tried it just now, sadly before reading reviews, as I saw the amount and price and decided to give it a shot. Some sort of grey garlicky meat paste in pasta shells, it’s supposed to have chicken in it? The thought made me gag.

  2. I appreciate the honest review! This is something I would probably toss in the cart while cruising Costco next week, so thanks for saving me from the disappointment…

  3. Accurate review, in my opinion. I tried Duso brand fresh pasta, I think it was tortellini, a few years ago. I cooked one pack and then put the other two into my green bin. The pasta is way too thick and dough like, the fillings aren’t good at all. I won’t buy Duso brand again, price isn’t everything. The Rana brand, sometimes carried by Costco Canada, is much better pasta and the fillings are more substantial and real. I
    wish Costco would bring back the Rana Chicken and Mozza ravioli, containing actual cheese and chunks of chicken. The Italian Sausage and Ricotta filled pasta as well. Far superior.
