Review: Spring Feels with Dell'Ugo Pasta Plus*


We were lucky enough to have Dell'Ugo get in touch with us, presenting us with the opportunity to try their new chilled pasta range. They are looking to disrupt their market with a concept as fresh as their produce - to be able to have restaurant standard pasta, all in one packet, and be able to have it cooked and served in under 5 minutes.

Dell'Ugo are actually the longest established pasta brand in the UK, creating delicious and innovative pastas using only the freshest ingredients from 1929.


As well as having some delicious and unusual flavoured pasta in the pack, which can be bought from Waitrose/Ocado for £3.99, the dish is completed by melting butter over the pasta, creating a smooth and silky texture. 

For that price you are serving two people a healthy and fresh lunch or dinner, however we personally felt that there was not enough in each pack. We do tend to be hungrier than the average folk, but we're pretty sure you would need at least a pack for one person. 


But the criticism ends there - we were lucky enough to be able to try both their Asparagus and Mozzarella Ravioli, served with lemon butter, and their Goats Cheese and Beetroot Fiorelli, served with mint butter. Both were absolutely delightful, so easy to make and we'll definitely be heading down to the pasta aisle of Waitrose for some more the next time we're in. 

We both agreed that the Goats Cheese and Beetroot was our favourite, due to the flavours being a little different to what you might expect from a pasta dish, and the bright colours certainly made it aesthetically pleasing. Also in their range is Ricotta & Spinach Ravioli with sage butter, Butternut & Squash Fiorelli with garlic & herb butter, and Tomato & Mozzarella Fiorelli with basil butter. 


We found Dell'Ugo's pasta a great lunch option for the lazy Sunday we were having last weekend. For once we didn't want to have to make meals from scratch, so this was perfect! Not only that, both packs were so delicious and with summer coming up, we imagine this could become a regular buy when we're looking for a light lunch sat in the sun.

A big thank you to Dell'Ugo for allowing us to try these pastas out! Do check out their website and social links below...

  5. These look so delicious! And quick weeknight dinners are the holy grail of the workweek. We'd probably need a second package as well, but £8 for a fast dinner is still cheaper than takeout!

    1. Exactly! When I read the packet I though it was under estimating but it seriously does take that quick to make!

  11. When I first saw the photos for this post, I thought that this was going to be a recipe post - home made pasta that you'd cooked yourself! To see that I can buy this in a supermarket is fantastic, I'll certainly be looking out for this brand in stores, especially as they do Spinach & Ricotta (one of my favourite combos!)
