Make your weeknight meal special - with Bertolli Meal Soups for Two (I did)

I am one of those strange birds who actually likes to cook!  That being said, with a toddler under foot and one in the belly I'm not always at my best to get in the kitchen and whip up a fancy meal.

Bertolli must have heard my call, and has created Premium Bertolli Meal Soups, from the freezer to the bowl literally in minutes!

I was given a coupon to try one of the Bertolli Meal Soups for 2, and a challenge to "Make a Weeknight Meal Special."  Naturally, I was anxious to see if this frozen meal would stand up to some of my homemade soup creations.  I choose the Chicken Minestrone, I was pleasantly surprised as it was completely delicious!  

Simple to prepare, just open the bag and pour into a saucepan, add 1 cup of water, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Seriously, that's it and it's done.  They must have some new way of flash freezing these veggies and ingredients so that they are still crisp, colorful and delicious after the trip from the store's freezer, to my pot and then bowl.

If you have a special night and not much time to prepare, your significant other would be pleased to have you set down a bowl of this piping hot, savory and comforting meal in front of them.  

Just add a candle to the table, throw a tablecloth on, and put some warm crusty french bread in a basket to make it feel like you're at a little romantic Italian restaurant (that's what I did) :-)

  • Bertolli® Frozen Meal Soups are hearty and fresh-tasting with vegetables, meats, pasta and herbs individually flash frozen at the  peak of freshness.
  •   Bertolli® Frozen Meal Soups are available in the frozen aisle, and can be prepared on your stovetop in minutes.
  •   With robust flavors and rich textures, new Bertolli® Frozen Meal Soups are available in four varieties: Chicken Minestrone, Roasted Chicken & Rotini Pasta, Tomato Florentine & Tortellini with Chicken, and Tuscan-Style Beef with Vegetables

Disclosure: I was compensated by Bertolli to participate in the Weeknight Meal Special Challenge.


  1. I'm a big fan of candles too! French bread is a great pairing for these soups.

  2. Candles just make everything more special and cozy!

  3. You can not go wrong with bread and soup on a cold night! And the candles add such a nice touch!
