Okay, it’s Italian Mini Ravioli time. This is very casual, you see? It isn’t even Trader Giotto-branded. You have to admit, it is mini ravioli. Although I’m not sure if this will increase or decrease the likelihood of people buying it, one could consider it a cook-at home Chef Boyardee. The $2.something package includes a pound worth of the good guys and costs $2.something. It’s very affordable.
They are good for taste. Sandy said it quite accurately, “They are more than half the good.” I’ll add that they are less than half bad. The other night, we boiled some to make a quick and easy dinner. Even though they had been swimming in the pot for quite a while, we found that they were still quite soft and chewy when we finally got to dig in. It’s probably more of our fault. While the pasta is reminiscent of the traditional semolina, the filling is a bit disappointing. The pasta is made from Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. It was good, but a bit too salty-gritty. The soups are still decent and we enjoyed our entire bowl. We won’t mind eating them again. The next time we make them, however, we will probably opt for the chicken broth soup option because they are a bit more delicious that way.
Sandy gives them three because she feels they’re better than ravioli. They’re durable and dry, which could be one of their disadvantages. Can we go back to unbearable humidity? Make sure you have shelter. Sandy explained that a three-person team is better than a half-dozen because she can only award 2.5. To think that she asks me to solve math-related problems, which is similar to asking for directions in a foreign place. I match the three of them.
The bottom line: 6 of 10 Golden Spoons
* Gonna be working on yet another collaboration with them soon! Keep tuned. God willing, one day we’ll be interviewed by Katie Couric.
