Time for another convenient Costco fresh pasta review! During a recent trip to Costco I found this Duso’s Lemon Ricotta Mezzaluna and decided to pick it up because I’ve never had lemon pasta before and I love anything with ricotta. Fresh pasta from Costco is always a meal that’s done in just a few minutes without much work which I always appreciate.

A recent popular pasta from Costco is the Rana Tagliatelle Seasoned White Chicken & Mushroom Sauce and my personal favorite pasta I’ve had from Costco recently is the gluten-free, vegan Pedon Yellow Lentil Spaghetti.

This mezzaluna can be found in the refrigerated deli section near the other fresh pasta and cheeses, the item number is 2689888.

Taste

I gotta say, I liked this pasta! You have to be a fan of lemon to enjoy it because it does have a strong lemon flavor but not in a sweet, dessert way. The lemon pairs really well with the delicious, salty, creamy and flavorful ricotta.

This is definitely a savory pasta but doesn’t need any extra heavy tomato or alfredo sauce. Just a simple drizzle of olive oil or melted butter completes this meal.

I found the pasta quite filling despite not having any meat with it so this pasta from Costco is perfect for your meatless-Monday dinner! We also had a ton of leftovers and I snuck a few mezzalunas cold from the fridge and it was so yummy served cold!

Cost

For two 500 gram packages of mezzaluna (1 kg all together) I paid $11.99 Canadian which is not bad! One package was more than enough for my husband and I.

Convenience

Absolutely easy to cook and have on the table in just a few minutes! All you do is boil some water, cook the pasta for 6 to 8 minutes and serve it with either olive oil or melted butter! You could also pair it with herb-roasted chicken or fresh garden vegetables.

The best before date on my lemon ricotta mezzaluna was about 6 weeks from the date I purchased it. The pasta needs to be kept refrigerated and should be consumed within three days of opening it.

Nutrition

The ingrediests list has all the ingredients I would expect to see in fresh pasta containing lemon and ricotta! That doesn’t necessarily make it healthy though.

Overall

Give it a try!

If you love lemon flavor and ricotta cheese I recommend trying this! If you’re scared of Duso’s products because of my review for the Duso’s Jumbo Chicken & Mozzarella Ravioli, let me assure you, this is much better!
