Bertolli® Premium Meal Soup: A Review

With my family flying in and out of our nest a minimum of 3x per day, meal times together are a challenge! We rarely get to sit as a family, and time for making a meal is usually spent on homework or other household chores. Anything I can find to make meal time easy and stress free is a huge blessing. Bertolli® has done just that. Bertolli® sent us a coupon for a bag from their Meal Soup line for the Weeknight Meal Special Challenge. I chose the Roasted Chicken & Rotini Pasta Soup for our meal. It was filling and satisfying. We had an incredible meal in just three simple steps. 
  1. Pour contents of bag into a sauce pan and add 1 cup of water.
  2. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Reduce heat and cover, simmer for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. 
That's it. Easy Peasy! I had dinner ready in 18 minutes, start to finish- that included making grilled cheese and setting the dinner table! My kids wondered if I were getting sick when they got to drink out of the "good" glassware! LOL!

Just the bag of soup, a saucepan, and a cup of water! EASY!

Look at all those vegetables!

Table ready- except for napkins!

Daddy Crow's plate...the soup paired with grilled cheese, yep that's how we rolled this meal for Daddy and the kids!

Awww...This is a priceless photo! (yes, my head was bowed also)

I didn't get to have a grilled cheese. I paired my soup up with a salad! My favorite way to eat soup! Yum!

Look the soup is gone before the sandwich. Winner!!!!
My family loved the soup. I was very impressed personally. As one who is counting calories right now and looking at nutrition labels on everything I loved that this particular meal boast 20g of protein and 4g of fiber per serving with 290 calories. One bag serves two, so I didn't get the complete serving, but it was plenty for me. The Bertolli® Meal Soup's are found in your grocer's freezer section.
