Buitoni

Another dinner brought to you by FoodBuzz Taste Makers Program.

Buitoni sent me a coupon to try one their new Riserva pastas or sauces.  I opted for the Wild Mushroom Agnolotti.IMG_8144

The calories were pretty typical for ravioli, but I was a little confused about where all the fat came from.  High in protein though.

thought they would be great paired with some veggies and ummmm homemade pesto!!!!!

I used basil from my garden, lemon, parm, EVOO and S&P to make my simple pesto.

I don’t really buy many fresh stuffed pastas, but if/when I do I will definitely keep these in mind.

Things I hope Buitoni might consider; figure out how to get rid of some of that saturated fat and maybe try and whole wheat line?

Overall I would have to say these are the best grocery store stuffed pasta I have ever eaten and Nick also gives it two thumbs up.

Check ya later!
