Giovanni Rana have launched a new range of fresh filled pasta, the New Italian Indulgence range. We as a family love pasta and have it for our meals several times a week. In fact Giovanni Rana is in our fridge more often than not as I find it a really simple meal that takes just a few minutes to prepare, ideal for quick, easy dinners. We love the spinach and ricotta tortelloni, so one of the new indulgence flavours really caught my eye as a more luxury, grown up version and fortunately we were sent some to try.
We also received some of the simply Italian tortelloni filled with Italian cured ham and cheese which I tried out with the children. Simple to cook, you just add to boiling water for 3-4 minutes. I added some tomato passata for the children as can be seen in the pictures above and they gobbled this down without hesitation – a perfect after school meal ready in minutes that they enjoy. With hectic evenings, after school clubs, swimming lessons etc, I find this great for busy lifestyles.
I couldn’t wait to try the Italian Indulgence large ravioli. Filled with Crumbly Ricotta, shredded baby spinach and Mascarpone it sounded delicious. After boiling, I added some green pesto and serve with rocket, all topped with freshly ground black pepper. This proved to be as delicious as it sounded and I could have easily eaten more. The flavours tasted more grown up than the more basic range and definitely a little indulgent!
