Trader Joe’s mascarpone cheese is rich, thick, creamy and delicious. It’s a good value too, priced at under $4 for an 8 ounce tub. There are so many uses for mascarpone, from tiramisu to mixing into pasta to using in cakes and baked goods. I love to mix it into sauces and soups I make because it gives anything you add it to a rich and hearty depth of flavor. There are few variations of cheese I love more than mascarpone. I would put burrata and mascarpone among my top 10 favorite cheeses at Trader Joe’s. I know that Trader Joe’s cocoa mascarpone has also been available at different times, but I think this plain one is the way to go…….…….

Mascarpone at Trader Joe’s
When you first open up this mascarpone cheese, if you aren’t used to it, it almost looks like spackle. But the subtle and rich flavor it gives food is to die for. I don’t think I’ve ever really had a bad mascarpone cheese so it’s probably hard to go wrong no matter where you buy it. A few times I’ve made pastas or sauces that were not as tasty or rich as I hoped. That’s when I normally add a few dollops of mascarpone. It blends perfectly and will dissolve into hot soups and sauces right away. For some reason whenever I crave mascarpone I also usually want some burrata. Now if you’re counting calories or trying to eat less fat, this may not be the best option for you! But if you want a delicious spreadable cheese that’s both rich and slightly tangy, this is your jam. If you can’t make it to TJs, check out these other options…..
