Heart Ravioli with Pink Alfredo

As promised, we continued our week of Valentine’s treats last night, dining on a delish and festive meal of heart shaped ravioli with pink alfredo sauce.

I make my own alfredo sauce – it’s really a cinch and tastes immensely better than the jarred variety. Simply melt a half stick of butter on low, stir in 1 cup of cream (I had half and half so I used that) and simmer for five minutes before whisking in a minced garlic clove and 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese. I added a few drops of red food coloring before whisking in the cheese to turn it pink. I generally add a little tomato paste but was unfortunately out and had to resort to more unnatural measures. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

I’m sure you’re dying to know where I found such sweet raviolis?!?!  Well, I was beyond excited to see that Costco was carrying these again this year! Here’s what the package looks like in case y’all want to be on the look out.

While there, I also picked up a few other Costco faves.  Don’t fear, I won’t bore you with our toilet paper and paper towel selections.  Just the good stuff.

Two tubs of Palmetto Cheese.  It’s incredibly cheaper than at the grocery and so good on sandwiches, grilled sandwiches and folded into grits.

A Morton’s Steak House tri tip steak.  To die for on the Big Green Egg.  We’ll be dining on this Valentine’s night once the littles are tucked in bed.

 And a brand new discovery…Belle & The Bees Breakfast Cheese.  Oh. Em. Ge.  This is a hand made all natural spreadable goat cheese sweetened with Savannah Bee Company artisan honey.  I lightly toast fresh whole wheat bread, spread with this cheese and top with sliced fresh strawberries.  *swoon*

So, do tell…what are your Costco must-haves?  You know, so that I can spend a gazillion more dollars that I already spend on my next Costco trip.

  1. omg! were we separated at birth? i stared at that goat cheese spread for a good ten minutes earlier this week at costco…but then determined my cart was well into the triple digits and just couldn't justify ten more clams on an unconfirmed item. :) but now that i know how good it is, it is definitely going back in the cart next time! and i am totally making your alfredo sauce, stat. xoxo

  2. I ♥ Costco, too! Some of my most faves:
    Island Way Sorbet in Real Fruit Shells
    Ling Ling All Natural Potstickers
    Diva Delights Cranberry Crips
    Santa Barbara Salsa Mango with Peach
    Kirkland Diet Green Tea with Citrus
    Flax USA Organic Cold Milled Golden Flax Seed

  3. Get the waffles in the bakery section!! They have little pockets of crystallized sugar in them. So yummy and you don't even need syrup. Love them with w scoop of ice cream and nutella!

  4. I love the chicken and mozzarella cheese ravioli, Miltons whole grain bread, organtic chicken breasts, and much more. I live in Calif. so don't know if other states carry the same items.
