If my last post implied that I only bought three things at Costco, well that was a lie. Those are just three of the typical things that I always want. The thing with Costco shopping for a family of two is that it’s always a bit of a gamble. They have good deals on things like apples and spinach, but will we eat them on time? They have some interesting looking products but they’re big, so if you don’t like them, you’re throwing away a lot of money. We took a gamble, however, on these Superfood Ravioli. Kale ravioli? Sign me up!
I don’t eat a ton of pasta. I like it but it’s so easy to overeat. So when I made myself a bowl of ravioli, I made sure to measure it out. Each one cup serving had 220 calories so I measured out a portion of 1.5 servings. I knew that it would still feel like a very small amount so I looked through the fridge for something to bulk it up with. A zucchini that was going to be past it’s prime in a week? Perfect.
It worked! I sauteed the zucchini slices in 1 tsp of olive oil until they looked done and then mixed it all with some pasta sauce and some feta cheese (a huge tub from Costco).
Any good Costco finds lately?
