Bertolli Classic Meals and Meal Soups Giveaway and Review 11/14

Bertolli brings authentic Italian dining to your home with fresh-tasting, premium ingredients.  Available in two rich flavors, Roasted Chicken & Mushroom and Garlic Shrimp, their new risottos are made with Italian rice, parmesan cheese, crisp vegetables and high-quality proteins.

Bertolli also has two new Meal Soup flavors – Italian-Style Wedding and Ricotta & Lobster Ravioli in a Seafood Bisque.  I received these items for review and one Moms Own Words reader will win 4 full product coupons to try any Bertolli’s frozen meals.

Bertolli Classic Roasted Chicken Risotto Review

The Chicken Risotto is a frozen meal for two that was easy to prepare. I just placed the contents in a skillet on medium high for about five minutes or until it was heated through. This was a real treat. The creamy Parmesan cheese cream sauce was delicious paired with the chicken and risotto. I liked the asparagus in this dish and there was quite a bit of it. I normally never eat it.  What a nice surprise for a frozen meal. At 12 grams of fat per serving, it this wasn’t very low in fat, yet it was the lowest of the four meals that I received. At 930 mgs per serving, the sodium was a bit high for me. Despite the high fat and sodium, this was a tasty meal that was easy to prepare.

Bertolli Meal Soup Italian-Style Wedding Review

This Italian-Style Wedding soup was easy to prepare right on the stove-top. I just added one cup of water and the frozen soup to a sauce-pan and cooked for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until it was heated through.

Okay, since I pointed this out with the first meal, I have to do it again for this one. The fat is very high at 19 grams per serving. (This is a splurge for me.) Also, the sodium is 1,090 per serving, which is 1/2 of the bag. Why? Why use that much sodium? It’s a lot for sure. Now that I’ve gotten the negative out of the way. This soup had nicely flavored Italian meatballs and lots of spinach. I love that! There are pieces of bacon in the soup (which perhaps contributes to the high sodium) but it really gives the soup’s broth a smoky flavor. I loved the restaurant-taste of this soup, just not all fat and sodium.

About The Bertolli Tradition

In 1865, Francesco Bertolli® opened a small store in Lucca, Italy selling regional foods including wine, cheese, olives and olive oil. When Italians emigrated to America in the late 1800’s, they wrote to Bertolli asking him to send crates of olive oil. Thus, Bertolli became the first exporter of olive oil.
Since then, Bertolli® has grown to include a broad range of restaurant-quality pasta sauces and frozen meals that stay true to the heart of authentic Italian cuisine.

    I would love to try the Bertolli® Chicken Alfredo & Penne. But really any of them (with the exception of the sea food) & any of the soups look so good. Someone was thinking what pasta lovers want when they created these.
