I love trying out locally produced food, so I picked up a packet of Pasta Milano’s Fresh Ravioli with Tomato & Mozzarella:
I like pasta and buying fresh pasta is something I like to do assuming that I’m planning on cooking it within a couple of days.
The Fresh Ravioli with Tomato & Mozzarella comes in a fairly simple package and is made from Irish ingredients – at least in part: ricotta cheese, Irish mozzarella, tomato concentrate, potato flakes, parmesan, cheddar, pecorino cheese, whey powder, milk powder, oat flakes, salt, garlic.
I cooked it this afternoon and while it was tasty – served with a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan – I’m not sure if it was worth paying the premium price.
While I like being able to support local business there is a line – paying almost double for the “pleasure” is a bit much.
