This week’s review is Trader Giotto’s mushroom ravioli in mushroom truffle sauce from Trader Joe’s.
It’s a frozen product, so I automatically expected the ravioli to be overcooked. I wasn’t proven wrong.
The ravioli are incredibly soft: fans of al dente (and real Italian food in general) will be greatly disappointed. Mind you, it’s not as brutal as that canned stuff they give to kids, but it’s not a high-caliber item.
The mushrooms are…mushrooms. There’s not much to say either way.
The truffle sauce is a little weird. It’s somewhat like a deep cream of mushroom soup put over the ravioli. It’s not bad, but it’s not fantastic either.
All in all, these ravioli are exactly what you would expect from a frozen product. Even imported from Italy, this product lacks the Italian feel. They’re okay.
