Costco Fans Are Sharing Their Favorite Ways To Eat Its 5 Cheese Tortelloni

Ever get home from the grocery store with some item that looked delicious only to realize you have no idea what to do with it? Not to fret, social media has solved some of those maddening cooking conundrums of yore. Sites like Instagram and TikTok have created a safe, intimate space for culinary novices to get some much-appreciated cooking inspo. There are even entire pages dedicated to shopping at specific stores that can be a huge help in the kitchen.

The profile for @costcohotfinds bills itself as "Your Costco support group!" — and it's not wrong. A look over the page reveals a wealth of knowledge on Costco finds, including deals on clothing, decor, and foods from the wholesale chain. But one recent Instagram post gifted viewers with an instructional video on preparing the chain's tortelloni – not to be confused with the oh-so-similar pasta, tortellini, which are smaller and typically packed with meat as opposed to the vegetarian filling used for tortelloni (via MasterClass). With the video and some additional advice from followers in the user's comment section, Costco shoppers who have purchased — or are considering purchasing — the Five Cheese with Parmigiano Reggiano Tortelloni from Kirkland Signature should have nothing to worry about.
