What’s for dinner tonight? How about a plateful of tender ravioli filled with creamy ricotta and Romano cheese and topped with a rich, thick tomato sauce? Thanks to Pastosa Ravioli’s new line of gluten free ravioli that’s exactly the meal my family was able to enjoy today.
The first Pastosa Ravioli store was opened in 1966. On their website, they proudly describe themselves as “A third generation, family-owned and operated Italian specialty food company widely recognized as the source of New York’s finest ravioli, fresh pasta and Italian specialties…Pastosa Ravioli has grown from a Brooklyn landmark to a household name throughout the New York Metropolitan Area.” The gluten free ravioli certainly lives up to their standard of producing delicious, quality food.
The gluten free large round cheese ravioli is produced off site where Pastosa assures: “Good manufacturing practices are used to segregate ingredients in a facility that also processes wheat.” They promise that they use only the finest ingredients in their products. The dough of the gluten free cheese ravioli is made with all-natural Domata Living Flour (a gluten free rice flour). The filling is made with whole milk ricotta and Romano cheese.
Quick and Easy Cook and Prep Time
The ravioli come in a 16 oz package and must be kept frozen until you are ready to eat them. They can keep for 1 month when sealed and frozen. When you are ready to cook them, simply add a tablespoon of salt to boiling water. Gently place the ravioli into the pot and cook for 8-10 minutes.
When removing the ravioli from the pot, use a slotted spoon so that they do not break apart. For a delicious red sauce, try organic, gluten free Muir Glen. However, I think these ravioli deserve a homemade sauce.
My family tested other gluten free ravioli products before choosing Pastosa as the undeniable winner for best taste. This dough had absolutely no dusty or chalky back taste. The ravioli are quick and effortless to cook, and the ricotta cheese filling is fresh and delicious. One of my sons, who usually refuses to eat gluten free pasta, loved this ravioli and asked for seconds. He said he couldn’t tell that it was gluten free. I recommend this product to all of my readers.
