Giovanni Rana Fresh Filled Pasta – Review

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.

Giovanni Rana mainWe 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!
