Bertolli Meal Soup

I had the perfect “ME Time” date planned out. My kids all had plans and I was going to be alone with my magazines, a little DVR catch-up and an awesome (easy to prepare) meal.

Then, I got sick! Boooo!

Fortunately, I had planned a very easy evening, so all was not lost. I had bought 3 magazines at Target that day. Target coupons are usually easy to find to save some change. I rarely get time to sit and read without interruptions so for me to get through 3 magazines in an evening was hopeful. I had lots of shows to watch on my DVR.
The good news is that my easy to prepare meal was Bertolli Premium Meal Soup and I bought the perfect flavor for being sick, Roasted Chicken & Rotini Pasta.

To prepare the soup, I opened the bag, poured it into a microwave-safe dish and put it in the microwave for 12 minutes (stirring halfway through.) While my soup was in the microwave, I brought my magazines and a wheat roll up to my bedroom. I was going to be sure there were no interruptions so I was hiding away.

Twelve minutes later I had this awesome soup…

This meal tasted so good. When I was a kid, I remember my mom making chicken noodle soup in the winter and this is the first soup that brought back those memories. It had a lot of flavor and I could see the spices in every spoonful. The noodles and veggies were crisp and not soggy at all.

You can see the spices in the soup. Yummy!

I added a warm wheat roll and dipped that into the chicken broth. YUMMY! I was feeling pretty miserable that evening, but the Bertolli Chicken & Rotini Meal Soup definitely hit the spot. Even though I was sick, within 30 minutes I had a hot soup and was snuggled in my bed with my favorite magazines and relaxing so I can get better.
