Making fresh filled pasta (other than using wonton skins) is such an intricate and time-consuming process that for me it crosses into a task which provides low culinary return on investment. Thank God for places like Maria’s Pasta, with its upright wall-to-wall freezers bulging with a wide assortment of frozen tortellini, ravioli, agnolotti and cannelloni. At $5.90 for 500g, it’s only a little bit more expensive than Latino Fresh, and it’s guaranteed to be a lot more tasty and better for you.
