The Costco Deli Just Brought Back These 3 Comfort Meals to Warehouses

For nights when cozying by the fire often sounds better than heating up the oven.
FACT CHECKED BY Joseph Neese

Costco is the place to go for bulk bakery treats, bulk frozen items, and even bulk home goods. It's also a great place to pick up huge grab-and-go meals at the deli counter.

The items that are available on any given day at the Costco deli vary depending on the store and the season. If you head to your local warehouse right now, you'll find a selection of comfort meals in stock just in time for the crisp fall days ahead.

On those cold autumn nights, cozying by the fire often sounds like a much better option than heating up the oven. If you're looking to save time in the kitchen, here are three beloved Costco comfort meals, plus two side options to add to your plate.

Italian Sausage Pasta with Garlic Wine Sauce

Costco is here to help you take Italian night to a whole new level with this grab-and-go comfort meal, which Instagram user @costcosisters spotted in the warehouse on Oct. 6. The Italian Sausage Pasta features sausage, orecchiette, fresh spinach, and tomatoes in a roasted garlic wine sauce.

The tins weigh about 3.8 pounds, bringing the sticker price to around $18-$20. Bake this dish in the oven for 50-60 minutes at 400 degrees. Best of all? It requires virtually no cleanup.

It's apparently pasta season at the Costco deli! Instagram user @costco.hotbuys also spotted Spinach and Cheese Cannelloni at the warehouse on Oct. 11.

Similarly to the Italian sausage pasta, this meal costs $4.79 a pound. While some reviews call it "bland," others say "no meat, no problem!"

Meatloaf

Meatloaf is an OG comfort food, and it's well-known that Costco does classics well. (Hello, pumpkin pie!) After enjoying this meal, which comes with a side of Yukon mashed potatoes, Reddit user @AFlyingToaster reported that it was "everything I dreamed it to be."

Though this is a cheaper dinner at $3.49 a pound, it's just as hefty as the two pasta dishes. The meatloaf is pre-cooked, but you still need to heat it in the oven for 60-70 minutes. Then you're ready to indulge in a comfort meal that tastes just like mom used to make.

There are also two new bread selections at the Costco bakery.

After picking your next dinner up at the Costco deli, head straight over to the bakery section to pick out a loaf of bread to round out your dinner plate. Recently, @costco.mademedoit revealed on Instagram that the beloved $8.99 loaves of cranberry walnut bread are officially back.

Another Instagram account, @thecostcopro, spotted another carb that could easily be used to help diners scoop up the leftover sauce on your plate after a meatloaf or pasta dinner—rosemary parmesan bread. A pack of two smaller loaves costs $6.99, and you can freeze the second one for dinner later in the week.

Both bread options make a cozy addition to any of the above comfort meals, but they can also be used to make a satisfying sandwich. Did someone say this is the one amazing ingredient your grilled cheese is missing?
