Perfect Pasta

Giovanni Rana


When your busy with a toddler all day, running around and trying to keep on top of things it's nice to have one or two things in the fridge that are fast and easy to make and go down well with the rest of the family and I think we have found it in the form of the Giovanni Rana simply italian fresh-filled ravioli. When they asked for us to do a review I was really excited and I always seer pasta as a treat and something we like to have once a week. I cook everyday and make most things from scratch but it's lovely having something even John can cook perfectly and it literally takes a few minutes.

The mushroom and ricotta cheese pasta was divine and we decided to add some Pesto for an extra dimension while John added some cheese on top. Even Mr A thought they were very yummy and it was a great change from my normal Mushroom and Tomato Penne.

Overall two thumbs up - simple and quick but feels like having a meal out, something a bit special and fairly healthy as well and they have a few different fillings with some lovely vegetarian options, as well as meat.

We were given two Pasta packs to do an honest review - our views are 100% our own

  5. I had some of these not too long ago, only I had the bolognese and the ham and cheese ones. So simple, healthy and quick! Perfect for those late nights, coming in from work and needing a quick bite.

  7. That pasta looks delicious! We have dried pasta frequently but I always think of fresh filed pasta as a treat. I love pesto too! :-) x

  8. Oooh we've tried the four/Italian cheese version of this pasta and the girls really enjoyed it. Fresh pasta is always so much nicer than dried.

  9. I absolutely love the spinach and ricotta ones of these. Haven't tried this flavour but will give them a go, we eat pasta about five nights a week so any variety is good! x
