The other evening, I arrived home to find a box on my doorstep (well, actually I live in a Manhattan apartment building, so my the box was being held by the super). I opened the flaps and discovered that FoodBuzz had overnight shipped me some Buitoni pasta to sample! The Wild Mushroom Agnolotti (i.e. big ravioli) is from Buitoni’s new Riserva line of pastas.
“This blend of earthy mushrooms, including sweet, rustic portobellos and delicate criminis, creates an impeccable pairing with fresh-roasted garlic and imported grana padano and parmesan cheeses, wrapped inside thin layers of stone-ground semolina pasta. ” – Description from the Buitoni Web Site
Doesn’t that make you HUNGRY?? It sure made my stomach growl. These little guys are quite dense (320 calories, 14 grams protein, and 3 grams of fiber in a 1 cup serving), so I knew I wanted to round out my meal with some veggies. I decided to toss the cooked agnolotti with roasted broccoli and marinara sauce. Verdict: Amazing! The cheese flavor was rich and delicious, the pasta was tender, and the mushrooms added a savory flavor to the mix. I would definitely buy these again. Next time I might try the quattro formaggio (4 cheese) variety of agnolotti with pesto!
Yum, Yum, Thanks Buitoni!
