Having to decide what to make for dinner can feel painful after a long, tiring day of work. Decide on a recipe? Buy the ingredients? Cook in the kitchen? That sounds like a lot of effort when all you really want to do is chill on the couch, order takeout, and watch some television. Thankfully, Trader Joe’s is always there for you in these moments with a variety of delicious prepared and frozen foods, and the store’s most recent pasta find is one we have a feeling you’re going to want to stock up on for moments just like this: a Sweet Corn, Burrata & Basil Ravioli.

Back by popular demand, Trader Joe’s is once again selling this seasonal pasta made with all of your favorite summertime flavors: fresh sweet corn and savory, herby basil. Stuffed with creamy burrata and ricotta, as well as a mixture of breadcrumbs, cheddar and Parmesan cheese, these raviolis feel rather decadent for the low price of just $3.99 a pack. Each package makes about 10 raviolis, which is technically two servings, but we have a feeling it might be perfect for one if you’re really hungry. These raviolis are also aesthetically-pleasing with strips of yellow semolina pasta, turning your simple weeknight meal into something decadent and gourmet after a mere few minutes of boiling in salted water.

Trader Joe’s recommends serving this ravioli with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of shaved or grated Parmesan, along with a summery salad like their Arugula Lemon Basil Salad kit. Add a glass of crisp white wine if you’re looking for something extra decadent.

Trader Joe’s shoppers love to get creative with this ravioli, serving it with a brown butter or a lemon cream sauce to really elevate the flavor of the dish. Some even love to add protein like lemon garlic shrimp or chicken to round out the meal. Nevertheless, because this pasta is only available for a limited time, if you’re a fan of this pasta, you can always stock up and toss them in the freezer for those moments when you need something easy.
