Review: Conte's Gluten Free Cheese Ravioli

Paradise sells some Conte's pre-packaged, frozen dinners. My hubby liked their ravioli so much that he asked me to write about it. Being the born-and-bred Italian that he is, he wasn't thrilled with the sauce (he was spoiled with his mother's tomato sauce recipe growing up), but he really liked the taste and texture of the pasta and the cheese.

His one complaint is the fact that, when microwaving the dish according to the instructions on the package, "stirring gently" often breaks up all the raviolis which still taste good, but isn't as aesthetically pleasing. The 20 oz. frozen dinner is in the ballpark of $10, and relatively small for a whole meal. Still, it's a nice option to have in the freezer for something quick, especially when he's on his own for lunch or dinner.

I checked on their web site and in addition to their pre-packaged dinner, they sell their frozen cheese raviolis online where you can add your own sauce. That looks like a nice idea for the occasional gluten free comfort food treat!
