Shrimp and crab ravioli show up in Aldi’s limited-time Special Buy (ALDI Finds) rotation from time to time, often more than once a year. They make a good main dinner course when they are paired with a jar of Aldi’s Priano Alfredo Sauce (sold separately) and served with a crisp salad and garlic bread.
Specially Selected Shrimp and Crab Ravioli come frozen in a bag and are advertised as “tender pasta filled with a delicious blend of shrimp and crab.” When I first bought them a year ago, the ravioli seemed to be filled with more cheese than seafood. When I bought them again more recently, I did notice several small chunks of shrimp in the filling, so it appears Aldi has tweaked the recipe and, appropriately, put more shrimp and crab in the Shrimp and Crab Ravioli.
The ravioli cook quickly and easily. I’m assuming the pasta and seafood are pre-cooked, which means you are basically just reheating them. The instructions say to add frozen ravioli to 4 quarts of boiling water and heat uncovered for 3 to 5 minutes, or until ravioli float or are at your desired level of tenderness. Drain, add sauce of your choice, and serve. Easy peasy. I always serve these with jarred alfredo sauce, but you could experiment with marinara sauce, pesto, or anything that sounds good.
One bag of ravioli contains 4 servings, with about 10 pieces of ravioli per person. It feeds my husband, two young daughters, and me just fine, but if you are feeding hungry teenagers or adults, I would recommend preparing two bags of ravioli (and two jars of sauce of your choice).
Aldi’s Specially Selected Shrimp and Crab Ravioli seem to contain more seafood than they used to, and they taste pretty good when paired with a jar of alfredo sauce. They make a quick, easy dinner, and you can’t beat the price. Recommended.
