Item Spotlight; Spring Pea and Yukon Gold Ravioli

It’s been a long, cold Winter here in Nashville and we could not be more excited to greet Spring!  Birds are singing, flowers are blooming and produce is sprouting!  For Alfresco Pasta, Spring means the return of our seasonal Spring Pea and Yukon Gold Ravioli.  Spring peas pack a uniquely fresh and sweet flavor while delivering a host of vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamins A and B, Calcium, Iron, Zinc and Potassium.

Available under our Wholesale AND Retail programs, our Spring Pea and Yukon Gold Ravioli combines only the freshest of English Peas with creamy Yukon gold potatoes and freshly grated aged Wisconsin parmesan cheese, all wrapped in tender sheets of freshly made pasta made of Montana durum wheat, Italian parsley and fresh eggs. You can actually taste Spring in each bite!
