Costco Kirkland Signature Four Cheese and Spinach Manicotti Review

Do you love the convenience of the Costco pre-made meal section? Do you like cheesy pasta dishes? This Kirkland Signature Four Cheese and Spinach Manicotti doesn’t have meat, but it definitely checks off the convenient and cheesy boxes! Is it as delicious as it looks? Does the lack of meat mean it’s more of a side dish than a main course?

Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Four Cheese and Spinach Manicotti. Other pre-made meals from Costco that I like are the Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Burger Meal Kit, Costco Kirkland Signature Stuffed Salmon, Costco Kirkland Signature Gyro Pita Greek Style Meal and the Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Penne Alfredo.

Location in Store

This can be found in the pre-made deli section at Costco, the item number is 22027.

The inside is full of a four cheese blend as well as a touch of spinach.

Taste

I enjoy cheesy pasta dishes so ended up really liking this Costco manicotti dish.

Straight out of the oven!

The meal consists of hollow tube shaped noodles stuffed full of ricotta, mozzarella, romano and parmesan cheese. The stuffed noodles are topped with a bit of tomato sauce, pizza mozzarella and a sprinkling of parsley. After baking this in my oven the noodles were a perfect al dente. The tomato sauce isn’t anything special, but I like that it has chunks of tomatoes in it. I don’t taste the flavor of the spinach at all when eating this.

The primary flavor you taste is the ricotta but the blend of cheeses all compliment one another. The entire meal needs more tomato sauce so the sauce covers the noodles more. It also would benefit from the cheese on top being spread more evenly.

Cost

The cost is dependent on the weight of the meal, I paid $18.39 Canadian for the Four Cheese and Spinach Manicotti dinner.

Convenience

This is such a convenient and easy meal! You bake the manicotti covered with aluminum foil for 50 to 60 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. The best before date is four days from the date that this was packed.

Leftovers can go in the freezer and you can also freeze the whole meal and then defrost it in the fridge overnight before baking it. This Costco Kirkland Signature Four Cheese and Spinach Manicotti can feed two adults and two children or three adults easily.

My husband isn’t too fond of meals that don’t contain meat so for him I would serve this as a side with a chicken breast. I found two manicotti was the perfect serving for me to have at dinner.

  1. We had this meal for the first time and it was absolutely the best we have ever eaten. We especially liked the way the spinach was laid out in bigger pieces than just mixed in with the cheeses. It was easy to put a wonderful meal together in an hour with no effort. Thank you.

  2. oh my gosh, I am a confirmed old fashioned cook, none of this buying dinner stuff, unless we take a break and go for a ‘diners drive in and dives” bite to eat.
    My HUSBAND sneaked IN THIS SPINACH AND CHEESE CANNOLONI premade dish in our cart. “For supper”, he added
    at the checkout counter. I smiled as it was already 5:15, and we had groceries to unpack and put away, and then make dinner? OK good idea.
    It was a delicious nummy idea. Really tasty, spices just right and, well, it didn’t take long for dinner that night.

    Thank you, Costco, for that delicious dinner. Jerry

  3. Coming from a woman who married an Italian, I was very skeptical when purchasing this item. Didn’t feel like cooking this evening. Sprinkled some garlic powder and basil over the top, covered with sprayed aluminum foil and baked at 375 for 60 minutes, cold from the refrigerator. The dinner was exceptional! Highly recommend!

  6. I would’ve given cost a 5. It’s still a good deal but expensive compared to other Costco convenient meals. Its certainly better than eating out…
