Spinach and Cheese Ravioli Nutrition and Ingredients
Let’s take a closer look at what you get with these ravioli packages.
You get two packages of spinach ravioli with each package containing 18 ounces of product. One serving is one cup of ravioli (100 grams) and there are about 10 servings when the contents of the two trays are combined. I weighed the ravioli and determined that a serving, 100 grams, was equal to four ravioli.

How to Cook the Spinach Ravioli
Cooking the ravioli is extremely simple and just takes a few minutes.
- Bring a pot of water (4-6 quarts) to a boil.
- Add a teaspoon of salt
- Place the ravioli in the boiling water and reduce the heat to a simmer.
- Let the ravioli gently cook for four minutes.
- Drain the ravioli, dress and serve.
When my ravioli were finished I drizzled them with olive oil and topped with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano and rosemary.
How Do Costco’s Spinach Ravioli Taste?
The spinach ravioli were surprisingly flavorful. The spinach was strong and prominent but not over powerful.
The use of cream cheese as a primary ingredient added a surprising touch of richness that played well with the Monterey Jack, Mozzarella and Ricotta.
Honestly I was expecting these to taste a bit bland but was delighted to discover their earthy creaminess. Surprisingly, I like these raviolis much more than the spinach and cheese cannelloni that Costco has as a ready to bake meal option.
My son’s favorite is the Lobster Ravioli while mine is the Spinach and Cheese. Everyone was in agreement that our least favorite is the Chicken and Cheese Ravioli. The Chicken and Cheese Ravioli is not bad or unpleasant, it just isn’t nearly as tasty as the other Costco ravioli options.
I bought the 36 ounces of spinach ravioli at Costco for $10.49 which works out to a price of $0.291 per ounce.
You can buy a 14 ounce tray of these ravioli for $5.99 at Safeway which works out to a cost of $0.427 per ounce.
This means that you will save $0.136 per ounce (32%) when you purchase the larger package at Costco.
