I'm not the biggest fan of pesto, but I bought this because I wanted to try it with Trader Joe's Sweet Corn, Burrata & Basil Ravioli. I have to say I really liked it. It had a good flavor that went a long way with just a little bit of sauce. It would be good on pizza as well, or as a topping for garlic bread, or maybe even in a potato salad or pasta salad. I'm looking forward to trying it on some other TJ's pastas soon that I've picked up.
I originally tried this ravioli with Trader Joe's Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce, but wanted to try it again with Trader Joe's Pesto alla Genovese Basil Pesto to see if that brought out the basil flavor better. I liked it with both, so I'm not sure which I'd say is the better, but I think it probably depends on your personal preference. The ravioli has a good, summery flavor that pairs well with both. With the Trader Joe's Pesto alla Genovese Basil Pesto you definitely get more of the basil flavor, but with the Trader Joe's Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce you don't get too much of it if you're not a die-hard basil lover. The ravioli was an interesting flavor, but I don't think it'll be a standard pick for me, as I kind of prefer more traditional ravioli flavors.
