Latina Fresh Spinach and Ricotta Agnolotti

Latina Fresh Spinach and Ricotta Agnolotti

With so few fresh gluten free pastas on the market I’m thinking most people have tried the Latina Fresh spinach and ricotta agnolotti. But it doesn’t hurt to have a review out there, especially if you’re new to gluten free life as a freshly diagnosed coeliac.

The taste

The pasta pieces are fairly well filled, inside is like a purée. It would be nice if there was a bit more texture, say little lumps of ricotta or spinach that isn’t fully blended. You can taste the ricotta and spinach, with both coming through equally.

It may be a bit salty, but in way that adds to the flavour, rather than being overwhelming.

Cooking hack for gluten free filled pasta

When I posted about this cooking hack on my Instagram stories I got so many people replying to me asking for the details.

It is so so easy. What you need to do is bring a pot of water to the boil, just as you would for the standard method. Once it’s boiling rapidly, add the pasta and turn off the heat.

Yep, turn off the heat!

Put a lid on top and let the pasta sit in the water for five minutes.

After five minutes carefully scoop out your perfectly cooked pasta and enjoy!

No burst pieces!

It’s a great method, you don’t even need to stir it. I have had much better results this way, with none of the ravioli opening up or making a mess. It’s definitely the way to do it, it’s always such a shame to buy expensive pasta only for it to fall apart.

The upgrade

As regular readers will know I always upgrade my meal with some added extras. Of course with pasta you do need to add something at the very least. Even just some simple melted butter and fresh herbs will do the trick.

My usual for filled pasta like Latina Fresh spinach and ricotta agnolotti is a few vegetables, usually red capsicum and mushroom fried up with some garlic and olive oil. It’s just a nice way to complement the meal.

I’ve also served it up with the Tik Tok famous feta and tomato pasta sauce, however I found it made the dish too salty overall.
