If you read this blog at all, you know that I possess two things:
1. Little skill for cooking
2. Little time for cooking
These two things often create a recipe for disaster! Because my husband and I both work full time outside the home, dinner needs to be quick. But I definitely don’t want to sacrifice taste or nutrition for my family. As the weather gets colder, we often look to chili or gumbo for a hearty meal, but something faster would be a dream come true!
I was recently introduced to Bertolli Premium Meal Soups for Two. Because I had a great experience with the Bertolli Oven Baked Meals, I had high hopes for the soup as well. Don’t look for the Bertolli Premium Meal Soups with the rest of the canned soups in the store….these are frozen! To prepare, simply pour the contents of the bag into the pot, add 1 cup of water and heat. It’s that easy….even I can do it!
After bringing to a boil, simmer covered for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated and serve. We decided to try the Tomato Florentine and Tortellini with Chicken Meal Soup which is a cheese-filled tortellini, white meat chicken, spinach and tomatoes in a rich tomato bisque with a hint of basil. Sounds amazing, right? When it began boiling, it did indeed smell delicious. As I stirred the soup, I was impressed with the texture and quality of the ingredients.
Dinner was on the table in less than 15 minutes and we couldn’t wait to dive in. The soup was absolutely delicious! You would never guess that it was frozen. The cheese-filled tortellini tasted homemade! The soup was plenty enough for both my husband and I and we did not leave one drop in the pot. I am definitely looking forward to trying additional varieties such as Chicken Minestrone or Tuscan-Style Beef and Vegetables.
