How to Cook Rana’s Italian Sausage Ravioli from Costco

Costco is selling the Rana Italian Sausage Ravioli as a two pack and it is a tempting option for an easy weeknight meal.  We bought and tried the ravioli with some marinara sauce and grated Parmesan cheese and thought that it was acceptable but nothing to get excited about.

The Rana brand usually produces quality products and this is no exception.  That being said, I was pretty underwhelmed by the Italian sausage filling.

Rana suggests using a simple sauce of either melted butter or olive oil.  The pasta is delicious with marinara but I don't think it would work well with an Alfredo style sauce.

I thought the pasta was tender and perfectly cooked. The ravioli were the perfect size and shape for holding plenty of marinara.

The ravioli made for a pretty plate and I enjoyed looking at them before we dug in!

The downside to the ravioli is that the Italian sausage filling is a bit underwhelming.  The sausage consisted of a few tiny pieces of meat that were overpowered by the cheese filling.

The sausage filling wasn’t bad, indeed it was quite flavorful, but a more accurate name for the pasta would be Four Cheese Ravioli with Sausage.  It looks like Rana uses ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan and mascarpone cheese for the filling and it is a nice combination.

Honestly, they could have left the sausage out completely and I wouldn’t have noticed much of a difference.

  • Fat: 12g
  • Cholesterol: 60mg
  • Sodium: 570mg
  • Carbohydrates: 28g

The nutritional content of the ravioli is pretty average.  I didn’t see any big red flags with the pasta and enjoyed it without feeling guilty 🙂

Calories in the Italian Sausage Ravioli


You don’t have to eat the pasta immediately when you get home but you do need to keep it refrigerated.  Once one of the packages has been opened the pasta should be cooked with three days.

The pasta has a “Use By” date that is about a month out from your date of purchase.  If you don’t cook the pasta by the Use By date then you can put it in the freezer where it will be good for one more month.

If you do end up freezing the ravioli you can cook them straight from frozen simply by adding an extra 1-2 minutes to the simmering time.


The Rana Italian Sausage Ravioli is Item Number 805151 and is found in the refrigerated coolers with the other prepared pastas.

The ravioli cost me $11.99 which works out to about $6 per meal.

I think the pasta is fairly priced and, despite my reservations about the quality of the filling, I can give this a thumbs up.
