I rarely eat pasta anymore so I usually quickly pass by the pasta aisle of my local natural organic grocery store.
Since going on a gluten free diet, I just never was thrilled with the taste of gluten free pasta. Maybe I just have high standards when it comes to pasta. Before going gluten free, I ate pasta almost twice a week and my father owned two Italian restaurants. You could say, I grew up around pasta.
But I usually find gluten free pasta disappointing, and, for the last 5 years, I’ve been following a paleo type diet so I rarely eat grains.
However, last month, I was passing through the pasta aisle in the grocery store, and I noticed a new GF line of ravioli by a company called La Pasta. I thought my children might enjoy it as they still occasionally eat GF pasta. They can use the carbs so I am okay with that. Nicole especially loves ravioli.
I decided to pick up a few packages, and everyone was skeptical. Would they be any good? Would they fall apart? Would they taste like dust? We decided to try them for lunch, so Barbara cooked them up and served them with an Italian Bolognese sauce.
Nicole tried them first. After eating the first one, her eyes lit up, and she smiled and nodded. It was like the approval coffee taster El Exigente gave to the coffee growers in that TV commercial from years ago.
The kids devoured the ravioli. But they left a few. I knew what they were thinking. Dad, you have to taste these. After a while, I finally gave in and tried them. Wow. They were good. The best GF ravioli I have ever eaten.
La Pasta Ravioli – Ingredients & Gluten Free Facts
La Pasta’s gluten free ravioli are light, creamy, and delicious. We tried the four-cheese ravioli: ricotta, mozzarella, romano, and parmesan.
They also make a mushroom ravioli as well as a spinach and cheese ravioli. The pasta is tapioca and potato based. The complete list of ingredients can be found on their website.
La Pasta’s gluten free products are organic and certified gluten-free by the Gluten Intolerance Group.
Quick and Easy Cook and Prep Time
All you have to do is place the frozen pasta in 4 quarts of boiling water. Then turn down the flame to a low boil for three minutes. Drain and serve with your favorite sauce. It’s that easy.
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. You can find Barbara’s Bolognese sauce recipe in this post.
I definitely give La Pasta gluten free ravioli five out of five stars. The ravioli are exquisite. It’s hard to tell they are gluten free. They’re perfect for a quick and tasty dinner or lunch.
Also, I want to note that I did not receive any compensation from La Pasta for writing this review. These opinions are completely my own — I just had to share this wonderful product with all of you.
Have you tried La Pasta’s gluten free products? Have a happy and healthy week, friends!
