DiGiorno Reduced Fat Cheese Ravoli

This was pretty bad. The pasta had a chewy texture that had no pasta flavor at all. Using the word cardboard is cliche, but it does apply. The cheese filling was grainy and only slightly tasted like cheese. This was paired in our test kitchen with the Marinara sauce. See the comments on this in the Tomato Sauce reviews. Suffice to say that the sauce did nothing to help the overall dish.

At $3.99 for about 2 servings it is best to not even put this in your shopping basket. 0 forks out of five.
