Sweet Corn, Burrata & Basil Ravioli

June 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

We’ve carried fresh pockets of pasta for some time now—and not just the traditional ravioli, but also mezzelune, girasoli, triangoli, tortellini… Though our newest, seasonal offering is the recognizable ravioli shape, Trader Joe’s Sweet Corn, Burrata & Basil Ravioli exceeds all expectations with its bright, seasonal tastiness. Though the name of this product aptly describes this exclusive-to-TJ’s Ravioli’s filling, it doesn’t do full justice to the flavorful...

We felt our collection of crusts could be even better with inclusion of a vegetable-based version, namely, a cauliflower crust. So, our Product Innovator traveled to Italy in search of...

Mashed Cauliflower

May 24, 2017 in Category: What's New

Although mashed potatoes are considered a culinary sidekick, it’s difficult to deny how crucial they are to their pairing partners. Where, for example, would bangers be without mash? And the Thanksgiving turkey without mashed potatoes? Unthinkable. If you’re looking to lessen the nutritional impact that accompanies said side dish, however, it can be tough to find a creamy replacement that stands up to the might of the mashed potato...
