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?

    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.    
    • This subject is often raised on this site, especially by women.  I am prompted to raise it again today, having spoken to my doctor who has said that she has noticed that celiacs often have thin hair, especially in later years.   Rather than just accept what she thinks is just the inevitable I would really like to hear from anyone who really has seen great improvement in their own hair and what they did. There are lots of tips on line but I am particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, and now has better hair!
