GIVEAWAY! Soup Tasting, Bertolli Style

It’s fall and that means cool breezes and chilly nights. What I love about fall are the evenings — a warm fire and a hot dinner! Soup is a go-to this time of year and everyone in my family loves it. The best soups seem take half a day to simmer and cook … which can be fun, but for us there just isn’t a lot of time for that process. Good news! Bertolli has recently came out with a line of gourmet frozen soups that can be made in minutes but taste like you cooked them all day! Since we already love Bertolli’s pasta meals, I was pretty optimistic about trying these out. Yep – love them!

Soup can be a wonderful meal when it’s done right. Bertolli uses fresh ingredients in these delicious and easy-to-prepare meals. The restaurant-quality soups are full of crisp vegetables, cooked chicken or beef, and pasta that leaves you feeling satisfied. – Bertolli
