Smart Ones Ravioli Florentine Review

Smart Ones Ravioli Florentine

We love a good frozen ravioli here at Freezer Meal Frenzy. We’ve tried everything from Evol’s Butternut Squash and Sage Ravioli to Udi’s Sweet Potato Ravioli, and we rarely say “no” to an appealing ravioli dish. So we jumped into the Smart Ones Ravioli Florentine with a great deal of enthusiasm.

We were pretty thrilled to find out that this product only contains 210 calories (and only 30 from fat, wow!) As a Weight Watchers product, this meal weighs in at 7 SmartPoints. Not bad for a ravioli, right?

Considering the low calorie count, this meal actually has a pretty good flavor to it. The sauce is maybe a little bland, and it has a hint of a plastic-ish aftertaste, but the hearty serving of vegetables really helps mitigate both of those problems. It’s hard to complain about a sauce when it’s loaded with spinach and zucchini. There are also bits of carrots mixed in, but we didn’t find them as tasty as the other veggies.

The ravioli itself tastes wonderful. The ricotta and parmesan cheeses really stand out here, which isn’t always the case with ravioli. Too often, the flavor of the cheese gets buried under everything else — here, it’s potent and delicious.

We weren’t as impressed with the consistency of the pasta, though. We found it to be a bit too rubbery and tough to chew. There also weren’t as many shells as we expected; while the veggies fill this out, we only counted five actual shells in this meal. One or two more certainly wouldn’t have hurt.

For something this diet-friendly, Smart Ones’ Ravioli Florentine really hits the spot. While this certainly could be improved upon, it would be very difficult to do so while keeping that calorie count so low. If you’re craving ravioli and looking for a low-guilt option, Smart Ones has you covered.
