The pros: Trader Joe's Spinach Tortellini are ready in literally 2 minutes and they are tasty little tortellini.
The verdict: For $2.29 this is the quickest pasta you can me with what looks to be the most generous serving size of anything in the pasta aisle.

Would I buy this again? Yes. They were filling and you feel like you get a lot for the calories per serving.
