Trader Joe's Spinach Tortellini

Considering that this stuff is stuffed with stuff that should be flavorful foodstuff, it's not very stuffed with flavor. In fact, it's kind of stuffy.

Seriously, I was hard-pressed to distinguish either spinach or cheese in the filling. This should not be difficult. But the generic taste of pasta was easier to notice than either of what should be dominant flavors. This was more mysterious than disturbing, but it was kind of a turn-off. What's the point of having pasta stuffed with cheese and spinach if stuffing it with sawdust would give the same effect?

Will I buy it again? 



  1. The ingredients list spinach powder! Like not even actual spinach.... and with a filling of mozzarella and breadcrumbs yeah, sounds like a bland thing. Shame on TJs for calling this spinach tortellini, it's obviously not a main ingredient

  2. In fairness, the first actual ingredient is spinach, but it does seem like a product that's been needlessly complicated, to its detriment.
