Buitoni Shrimp and Lobster Ravioli with Garlic Butter Sauce

 This Shrimp and Lobster Ravioli is part of Buitoni's new Riserva line of frozen entrees.  Some of the other entrees in this line include Chicken and Mushroom Ravioli in a Marsala Wine Sauce, and Five Cheese Canneloni.

Garlic Butter Sauce Packet
  The best part about this dish is how easy it is to make. All you need to do is get a pot of boiling water. The ravioli comes in one bag, and the garlic butter sauce comes in another.  Just empty the bag of ravioli into the boiling water, throw in the packet with the garlic butter sauce, and in about 5 minutes your meal is ready to be served.

Boiling the Raviolis
     The flavor of the entire entree I found to be underwhelming. The Garlic butter sauce was bland with only slight hints of garlic. The raviolis were also quite bland, with the filling being quite flavorless. It's taste seemed very much like a combination of ricotta cheese and fish.
Finished Entree

 While this entree is convenient to make, I found the flavor to be lacking. That combined with the high price tag of $9.00, and I really cant recommend this entree from Buitoni. If you happen to find it on sale for under $6.00, it would make an ok option as a quick dinner for two. Just make sure to add some needed spices and some grated Italian cheese to the sauce.
