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?

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
