Ravioli mix beats the kind in a can

Rush-hour remedies

October 08, 1997|By Maria Hiaasen

* Item: Hamburger Helper Ravioli

* What you get: 7.7 ounces, or 5 servings

* Cost: $1.89

* Preparation time: About 30 minutes, stove top or microwave

* Review: Hamburger Helper, the skillet-dinner mix that rose to fame during the inflationary 1970s, is out to lure you with a new flavor. OK, so inflation's in check, but this ravioli practically cooks itself. I'd rate the taste halfway between ravioli from a can and the higher-priced refrigerated variety. Wish they'd put some cheese inside the pasta, but a sprinkle of your own mozzarella or Parmesan will suffice.
