This $3 Aldi Frozen Pasta Is So Decadent, It Feels Like a Steal
Pasta is the ultimate comfort food. It’s tender and chewy, appropriately starchy, and there are unlimited recipes, shapes, and sauces to keep reinventing it over and over again until the end of time. Pasta never disappoints, it’s just that simple. If you are used to ordering takeout from your favorite local Italian spot every time you need a pasta fix, Aldi has your back — not to mention your wallet — with the introduction of the store’s latest frozen release: Smoked Mozzarella Ravioli.
Aldi’s Specially Selected Smoked Mozzarella Ravioli
Break out your pasta pot and salt your boiling water, because ravioli are on the menu tonight if you live near an Aldi location. According to Aldi USA’s recent Instagram post of new products, Aldi’s Smoked Mozzarella Ravioli hit shelves earlier this month. This decadent frozen ravioli are filled with delectable mozzarella and ricotta cheese and seasoned with black pepper and parsley. The pasta comes frozen, but all you have to do is add it to boiling water and cook until tender.
Thanks to the smoked mozzarella, this frozen ravioli is elevated to a restaurant-quality meal that you can enjoy at home — and at an easy and affordable price! Priced at only $2.99 per package, these ravioli feel like a steal, and make for a luxurious weeknight meal on a budget.
While this frozen pasta would be delicious on its own (or perhaps with a brown butter and sage sauce?), there are many creative ways you can get creative with your Smoked Mozzarella Ravioli. Try our slow cooker ravioli lasagna, cheesy ravioli pasta bake, or make fried ravioli for a fun appetizer the next time you have friends over. (If you make fried ravioli, be sure to defrost them first!) Alternatively, you could serve them with some pesto as the main event, in a bowl of vegetable or chicken soup, or as a side dish along with some fresh salmon.
Aldi customers have wasted no time trying them; one user commented on Aldi’s Instagram page that they “bought the smoked mozzarella ravioli. It was really good.” Another shopper wrote “stop taking all my money,” a sentiment that rings true for many Aldi fans.
Aldi is hands-down one of the best grocery stores to get quality frozen dinners on a budget, like these $8 smash burgers that practically taste gourmet, or these tasty $3 baguette pepperoni pizzas.
