Any time I pick up a product to purchase and the first two words on the ingredient list are not “mechanically separated,” I figure I’m way ahead of the game. It was the ingredient list that attracted me to the meat ravioli product of Perfect Pasta, a suburban Chicago manufacturer.
Note the ingredients: Durum wheat flour, beef, egg, whole milk ricotta, water, Romano, onions,celery, crarots, salt, bread crumbs, fresh garlic, parsley, fresh sage, fresh rosemaqry, black pepper, granulated garlic.
Isn’t that perfect? Sounds like some grandma’s recipe.
Perfect Pasta has been cranking out various noodle recipes of all ilks for consumers and commercial users for several decades. They focus on one segment of the industry and do it well.
So many pre-made, frozen ravioli have no taste and worse texture, but this product is a gem. Not only can you see the various ingredients (picture below), you can actually taste them!
If Google maps is correct (and it isn’t, on occasion), below you will a pic of Perfect Pasta’s plant, USDA inspected establishment # 19829. Use the company’s locator to find an outlet near you.
