Tesco Wicked Kitchen Spinach & Wild Garlic Ravioli

‘Commendable that this product is both GF and vegan. Generous ravioli pieces with plenty of filling. Taste is sensational – spinach and garlic come through. Very authentic – a real treat!’


Silver

FreeFrom Italy Maidea Paccheri Pasta

'Good for multiple allergies. Very excited about the unique big tube shape – really useful, lots of potential! Nice colour. Good flavour. Highly innovative – this type of pasta doesn’t exist on the market, so with some work it could do well.'

Tesco Free From Macaroni Pasta

'Good mild but slightly nutty taste. Nice appearance, smell, good bite, nice flavour. Useful product. Good size and shape. Not too small like some. Commendable it is gluten-free, wheat-free, milk-free and egg-free, and vegan. This macaroni is delicious, even without sauce! Haven’t seen many FF macaroni on the market, so this is a plus.'


Bronze

Aldi Organic Bean Pasta - Mung Bean Fettucine

'Like the texture, kind of chewy. Quick cooking time is a bonus. Looks a bit like seaweed. Great protein and fibre content. Very clean label. Interesting crinkled shape and colour. Creamy. I like it but not like traditional pasta texture.'

Dell'Ugo Porcini Mushroom & Spinach Ravioli

'Pleasant flavour and texture, but lower mark because not freefrom. Love that they have named the mushroom variety. Sounds more luxurious. Looks pleasant, nice aroma, delicious flavour and texture, added vitamins, shame about the may contains - needs work!'

Marks & Spencer Made Without Gluten, Wheat & Egg Lasagne

'Wouldn't know it was gluten-free. Nice texture, holds together. Slightly chewy, sweet flavour, good ingredients. High-ish protein. Clean label, good golden colour considering no egg. Very nice taste. Excellent colour, looks succulent and promising.'
