Monterey Gourmet Foods Review


I love good Italian food and pasta.  Monterey Gourmet Foods offers a delicious assortment of stuffed ravioli.  They come in Fire Roasted Mushroom and Four Cheese, Butternut Squash, Creamy Ricotta Florentine, Smoked Mozzarella and Artichoke, Roasted Chicken and Mozzarella, Tomato Basil and Mozzarella, Shrimp and North Atlantic Lobster and Artichoke and Colby Jack.

All of the varieties sound really good, but I sampled the Fire Roasted Mushroom and Four Cheese, Butternut Squash and Creamy Ricotta Florentine.  We also tried the Hearty Garden Marinara Sauce with them.  My favorite variety was the Fire Roasted Mushroom and Four Cheese.  It had such a wonderful mushroom flavor.  My husband loved the Creamy Ricotta Florentine Ravioli.  We both thought all the varieties were really good.  The Butternut Squash is very different, but it's also excellent.  The dough it's made with is orange and sage flavored.  I liked the Hearty Garden Marinara Sauce on the Creamy Ricotta Florentine Ravioli.  I actually liked the Fire Roasted Mushroom and Four Cheese and Butternut Squash with a little bit of butter on them instead of sauce.

What variety would you want to try?









What I liked best?  This is a really good pasta that is available in the refrigerator section.  It tastes different than most pasta that comes in the refrigerator section.  The filling in the ravioli is amazing.  You really can tell that they are made with high quality ingredients.  I really like that they use natural ingredients in their products.    I like that it's stuffed with high quality ingredients and they don't skimp on it.  The dough that these are made out of is tender.  Many refrigerator pastas can be rubbery and this was not.  It's the best I've had!  I like that it is simple to make for a quick meal.  It was so easy to boil for 4 to 5 minutes and then it was done.  I would recommend Monterey Gourmet Food's pasta products and sauces.
