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.

This can be found in the pre-made deli section at Costco, the item number is 22027.
I enjoy cheesy pasta dishes so ended up really liking this Costco manicotti dish.
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.
The cost is dependent on the weight of the meal, I paid $18.39 Canadian for the Four Cheese and Spinach Manicotti dinner.
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.
This nutrition information is directly from Costco, 1/6th of the tray is 440 calories, 22 grams of fat, 900 mg of sodium, 37 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, seven grams of sugar and 21 grams of protein.
The ingredients list is pretty much what I expect to see in a store bought pasta meal. Lots of different cheeses and of course it contains wheat, eggs and dairy. It may contain soy, sulfites, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame and mustard.
Give it a try!
If you’re someone who likes cheesy pasta dishes you’ll probably enjoy this. If you’re like my husband you’ll complain about the lack of meat!
