Location in Store
The ravioli is located in the refrigerated deli section at Costco and the item number is 6101960. This is another product I bought from the Kalispell, Montana Costco during my quick trip there!
The first thing that came to my mind as I tried the ravioli is that they’re just a little on the doughy side. There’s a decent amount of spinach and cheese filling in them, but I felt like the doughiness consistently stood out a bit.
The filling is mild but tasty enough. Both the spinach and cheese flavors are noticeable. It’s fairly salty, but not overly so. Ricotta is the first ingredient listed in the filling, then spinach, then mozzarella and finally parmesan, so that explains the fairly mild taste. Unless you enjoy plain, simple flavors, you will want to serve this ravioli with a tasty sauce.
There’s nothing wrong with this ravioli. If you serve it with the right sauce or you’re looking for a simple pre-made pasta to use with some sort of recipe, it’ll do just fine. Just don’t expect it to blow you away on its own.
The two-pack of ravioli costs $11.99 USD. Each pack weighs 623.7 grams or about 1.4 pounds. This price isn’t horrible, but it’s not the cheapest considering that there’s no meat in the ravioli. I think you’re definitely paying extra because it’s organic.
The ravioli needs to be kept refrigerated and the best-before date is about seven weeks from when we purchased it. It’s very easy to cook and is done in only a few minutes. The cooking instructions recommend tossing it in olive oil, melted butter or your favorite sauce. I think a sauce is definitely necessary and don’t think olive oil or butter would cut it.
You can freeze the ravioli if you’re not going to eat it by the best-before date and cook it from frozen. The package doesn’t recommend thawing it but instead cooking it for an additional minute. The ravioli is a product of the USA.
The ravioli can only be frozen for one month according to the package and should be used within three days of opening it.
One cup of ravioli or about 1/6th of a package contains 260 calories, 11 grams of fat, 510 milligrams of sodium, 31 grams of carbohydrates, four grams of fiber, five grams of sugar and 11 grams of protein. The ravioli is definitely not low in calories, sodium or fat and it’s really easy to eat more than a cup of it!
I like that there’s 11 grams of protein in one serving but I also recognize that the amount of protein is less than if it contained meat in the filling. The reason why I think protein is so important is because it keeps me full for longer.
All of the ingredients listed are certified organic and none of the ingredients listed are really surprising to me. They’re basically what I’d expect in a store-bought ravioli. The ravioli contains egg, milk and wheat and is processed on equipment that also manufactures lobster, shrimp and salmon.
Nutrition: 3/10 (Points for spinach and being organic).
