You could go the obvious route and give your Valentine roses, a box of chocolates, or conversation hearts on February 14th. But if your Valentine is a pasta lover and you’re a hopeless ramen…ticyou need to head to Costco and grab a bag of limited-time heart-shaped cheese-stuffed ravioli.
Pasta and pesto maker Nuovo Pasta is the creator of these fan-favorite ravioli that show up at Costco this time of year. The heart-shaped red and white artisan pasta is filled with four cheeses – an Italian blend of creamy ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan and aged asiago.
Nuovo shared the news on Facebook, along with a photo of the adorable ravioli:
After four minutes of cooking the pasta, you have puffy, heart-shaped ravioli that you can top with your favorite pasta sauce. But to make it a gourmet meal, Nuovo Pasta also shared their recipe for ravioli with vodka sauce, which is made with vodka (the alcohol evaporates during cooking), heavy cream, Italian tomato plus paprika and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. and chopped parsley on top. Just add a vase of roses to a centerpiece for the table and listen to some Frank Sinatra songs.
In addition to heart-shaped pasta, Costco goes big with other Valentine’s Day treats. Other treats you can find in store are Popcornopolis festive cone-shaped popcorn bags that contain caramel corn, popcorn, and chocolate “zebra” popcorn (original price, $34, $99). The bags are adorned with the same kind of messages you’d see on conversation hearts – sentiments like “Be Mine” and “U Rock”.
Or, for cookie lovers, Costco is selling a case of Mrs. Fields Valentine (original price, $49.99) and an assortment of 36 bite-sized cookies in a range of flavors from chocolate chip to macadamia nut; 24 bites of double fudge brownie, caramel fudge and caramel blondie; and two heart cookies with buttercream frosting.
Turns out, you can find everything you need for a festive (and gourmet) feast at Costco.
