Good Ravioli!
0

13 posts in this topic

Okay, it looks more like segments of crepes or manicotti than ravioli, but Comfy Cuisine Spinach Ravioli is really good! I got it for $5.79 for one serving, but when you don't feel like cooking and haven't had ravioli in two years, it can be worth it.

I had that a few weeks ago. I was so hungry when I ate it that I scarfed it down in like 3 seconds but it was pretty good. I would definately get it again.

I got it at a small store that just opened up near me in NJ - they specialize in foods for special diets. The other place I saw them advertised was on one of the e-mail updates from this website - looks like you can get them somewhere online. Anyone in NJ who would like to know, the store is DeLiteful Foods on Quakerbridge Road near the Quakerbridge Mall in Lawrenceville between Princeton and Trenton. Lots of gluten-free stuff I haven't found in any local stores, even Whole Foods.

That is good to hear!! I will keep my eyes open for it!

I found some Comfy Cuisine pizza at our Whole Foods and it was not very good. I ended up tossing it. I was very disappointed b/c I had heard good things about them. That is really only the 2nd thing that I have tossed in the 6 months I have been gluten-free. The first were some French Rolls from Trader Joes....YUCK!

I had the ravioli you are referring to and thought it was awful. I do, however love comfy cuisine eggplant parm. it's very good. For those of you who like it I get most of my gluten free food from Jandi's in Oceanside, NY (on Long Island), and they carry the comfy cuisine ravioli. Their website is www.jandis.com

they also have a vegetarian deli that has gluten free items. If you get their card, not a credit card, you can try anything and return it if you don't like it without a receipt. They are very nice there too! I live less than a mile away so its very convenient and if anyone visits let me know :D

I had comfy cuisine eggplant parm & thought it was horrible & watery. The pizza was just as bad. manicotti was a throw-away for us also. I didn't like any of the stuff...... The pizza crust was like a crepe.....

I haven't heard many say it was good....

The best raviloi we have had is from Dietary Specialties (dietspec.com) They look, cook and taste like raviloi. Expensive but I really felt that there was no compromise in taste or texture.

For eggplant parm we use Kinnikinnick's crispy coating with fresh eggplant. I bake it rather than fry it. It turns out wonderful, even my two year old daughter loves it. We serve it over Tinkyada spaghetti with Classico tomato sauce. YUM!

Just want to give my support to comfy cuisine. I love comfy cuisine pizza! I cook it on the stovetop in a big pan and I really enjoy it. It doesn't really have tomato sauce (which I'm trying to stay away from) so it works on all levels.

I haven't seen the ravioli but I would love to find it.

I'm sure everyone had different favorites before going gluten-free so it isn't surprising that everyone doesn't love the same gluten-free foods either. Sometimes my mom thinks something is great and I try it and think it is nasty.

dietary specialities ravioli is amazing but I refuse to order from them anymore....I know I probably shouldn't do that to companies that go out of their way for gluten free food but they have a minimum amount for shipping....you have to buy 75 dollars worth of frozen food before they'll even ship it and then they charge you 30 dollars to do so. I'm just out of grad school and a little tight on money...it's just frustrated, because I really do like their stuff!

would love to have gluten-free manicotti or ravioli with ricotta cheese (no vegetables). Does this exist?

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
