Unfortunately, not even Costco can please everyone, as has become evident in the wake of the fall-forward butternut squash and sausage cannelloni’s release. Several shoppers complained that the dish was underwhelming overall or that they didn’t think the butternut squash’s flavor paired well with the pasta. Others thought it was too sweet, with one person claiming it tasted like pumpkin pie.
That said, many customers who tried the cannelloni sing its praises. TikTok user @costcohotfinds said the dish made a “great last-minute lunch,” as it didn’t require any preparation. Others were sold immediately after seeing the cannelloni contained butternut squash. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a butternut squash pasta recipe?
At the end of the day, whether or not you like the Costco cannelloni will likely depend on how you feel about pairing butternut squash with pasta. If that’s a nonstarter for you, you’ll probably be more satisfied with one of Costco’s other ready-made, fall-inspired meals.
