Good Ravioli!

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've still got slow transit time, and have to work pretty hard to be regular. My last colonoscopy my doc complained about things not being very cleaned out. I had a horrible time with the prep. Thought everyone did till I spoke to my husband about his experience, and he's had a bunch of them. I have my big 50 colonoscopy coming up in December... any tips or tricks on making the prep more pleasant or work better so the doc doesn't yell at me again? (He almost stopped the procedure. I was pretty out of it but I do remember the angry tone of his voice.)
    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge.

    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
