I’ve been a busy lady lately, and on occasion, I just don’t want to cook! I mean thinking of what to make, defrosting the meat, cooking everything up, looking up a recipe. Some days it’s just not what I want to be doing. But, eating out isn’t always an option either, especially since I’m trying to eat healthier. But when you want a yummy, filling, quick meal, what do you do? You turn to Bertolli!
Now I’m not one who generally buys frozen pre-made meals, so this was a challenge in itself for me, however I was willing to try. After spending a few minutes in the freezer aisle trying to figure out which Bertolli Meal Soup sounded good, I finally decided on the Tomato Florentine & Tortellini with Chicken. It looked pretty good and although there were other varieties such as Chicken Minestrone, Roasted Chicken & Rotini Pasta, and Tuscan-style Beef & Vegetables, the Tomato Florentine & Tortellini with Chicken sounded the best to me, so in the cart it went.
I got home and got right to making dinner. Although I still had to cook it, it was really quick and not something I had to take a lot of time to prepare. The soup was very easy to get started, grab a pot, open the package pour it into the pot and add some water. Once it boils you reduce it to a simmer, stir it up and your ready! The soup took less than 20 minutes to finish cooking, and it smelled amazing!
While I was waiting on the soup to boil I also started up the Bertoilli Chicken Florentine & Farfalle Complete Skillet Meal. Again another easy task, all I had to do was grab a skillet, pour in the bag and stir a few times. In about 10 minutes it was a finished meal!
Honestly I was pretty impressed with the meals. Especially for frozen ones! My daughters ate up the Bertolli Chicken Florentine & Farfalle and even asked for seconds. Although it was a meal for 2 it fed them twice with a little left over. My favorite was the Tomato Florentine & Tortellini with Chicken Meal Soup. Its definitely a meal, and a great one at that! The tomato base was nice and thick and the tortellini cooked up amazing, not mushy at all which I was afraid of. Again being a meal for two there was definitely room for a few bowls of it between the two of us. The soup was amazingly hearty and filling with a great taste!
A full, hearty, healthy meal in under one hour….
You can find Bertolli Meal Soups in the freezer aisle at your local grocery store, we found ours at Walmart, priced for under $6.00.
Although I was a skeptic at first, I was very happy with how the Bertolli meals came out, these will definitely be in my freezer for a quick fix for dinner!
