A New Failure

For a while there, Ryan and I were eating ravioli about once a week.

Monterey Pasta Company made our ravioli of choice. (Just FYI, the spinach ricotta and lobster ravioli are the best flavors.)

Unfortunately the pasta itself wasn’t whole wheat and I had a feeling there had to be a tasty whole wheat ravioli option out there.

A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a bag of frozen 365 organic whole wheat spinach and cheese ravioli from Whole Foods, stuck it in our freezer and forgot about it.

When Ryan went to throw some ravioli in our cart at the grocery store this week, I stopped him and remembered the ravioli chillin’ in the freezer.

Tonight we put the whole wheat ravioli to the test…

We served it with cauliflower, mushrooms, zucchini, marinara sauce and Parmesan cheese.

Mushrooms + Zucchini

I love lots o’ veggies with my pasta.

Dinn-ahhh

The verdict?

Mehhhh. We were both pretty disappointed in the ravioli. 😦

The whole wheat pasta had a funky flavor to it and overpowered the flavor of the spinach and cheese filling.

But have no fear, we still managed to clean our plates. πŸ˜‰

  13. hahaha…I was going to saw “TWO-nafish.” But clearly I am so wrong.

  14. I know what you mean about the wheat pasta having kinda a funky flavor…sometimes you can remedy that by throwing some garlic powder in the pot of boiling water while you’re cooking the pasta. It gives it just a little more flavor…sorry dinner was a fail 😦
