Nope, it’s not a pot o’ gold (though, they do a sell a 27-pound bucket of mac and cheese, which is basically the same thing).
Costco, purveyor of bulk-size everything, just made us actually excited for green-beer day with their newest offering: Five-cheese green-colored ravioli shaped like shamrocks.
The big-box retailer is now offering the festive entree from Nuovo Pasta. The shamrock ravioli contains five cheeses wrapped in pockets of green and white dough: Irish aged cheddar, shredded mozzarella, creamy white cheddar, velvet ricotta and Parmesan cheese.
Earlier this year, Costco debuted Nuovo Pasta’s heart-shaped ravioli just in time for Valentine’s Day, proving that every holiday could benefit from soft pillows of cheese-filled carbs.
The shamrock ravioli is retailing for $10 per two 20-ounce packages. The packaging suggests serving it with Irish vodka sauce (with a recipe for it included on the back), but we recommend pairing it with more green or white in the form of pesto or Alfredo, plus a healthy shaving of grated green cheese (from Aldi, of course) sprinkled on top.
Nuovo Pasta’s Facebook also posted gorgeous photos of the festive ravioli and a recipe to use them with spring peas and beer butter sauce. (So, dinner at your place then?)
Plus, after St. Patrick’s Day, the mini tree-shaped ravioli is so festive for spring. (It’ll be our little secret.)
