Say hello to your Halloween dinner party entrée.

Cheese and pasta are two of the most loved comfort foods, so when we spotted holiday-themed cheese-filled pasta, we had to learn more. Plus, we can buy it from our favorite bulk grocery store chain. So it’s time to make a dash to the pasta section, grab a package (or two) of this seasonal offering, and make it any way you like. We’re thinking tossed with alfredo sauce, chicken, and veggies; or with a simple marinara and sprinkling of Parmesan; or in a pesto sauce with fresh tomatoes. See? Endless options.
Last February Costco sold cute heart-shape cheese ravioli for Valentine’s Day filled with a blend of creamy ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, and aged asiago cheeses. This October the brand behind the shaped ravioli, Nuovo Pasta, dropped a line of seasonal pumpkins and bats just in time for Halloween.
If you’re throwing an adult Halloween party, stocking up on a few packages of this ravioli to create a simple yet festive meal (we also recommend whipping up a few of our favorite quick Halloween party foods). Or, if you’re looking for a quick dish to whip up before trick or treating, we’re pretty sure kids will love the cute pumpkins and bats, too. Serve them to your young goblins and ghosts as a special meal before they hit the neighborhood on their annual quest for candy.
The 32-ounce package of orange pumpkins and black bats retails for $8.79 at Costco and tastes as you’d expect a savory four-cheese ravioli to taste—while looking a little creepier. When you’re at the store you might also want to pick up one of these huge carving pumpkins Costco is selling to complete your fall front porch decor without emptying your wallet.
There are so many wild (maybe even batty) seasonal foods that come out each year, but this is one cheese-and-carb loaded impulse buy you won’t regret.
