MADISON, WIS. — Taste Republic has partnered with Beyond Meat to introduce Plant-Based Sausage Ravioli, featuring Beyond Sausage Italian Crumbles and Wisconsin mozzarella cheese.
The pasta is gluten-free and formulated with brown rice flour.
"Fresh ravioli that tastes remarkable should be available to everyone," said Brian Durst, chief executive officer of Tribe 9 Foods, the parent company of Taste Republic. "Beyond Meat has accomplished for meat what we've done for pasta — to create an option comparable to its traditional counterparts. The result is really good ravioli."
Beyond Sausage is made with pea protein, expeller-pressed canola oil, natural flavors and spices.
"By incorporating Beyond Sausage into Taste Republic's gluten-free ravioli, we're offering a nutritious and sustainable way for pasta lovers to continue eating what they love," said Tim Smith, vice president of Food Service North America, Beyond Meat. "Together, we've created a delicious plant-based protein dish that tastes just as great as its animal-based equivalent."Taste Republic Plant-Based Sausage Ravioli is available online and at select retailers.
