When I saw the Bertolli Roasted Chicken and Rotini Pasta meal soup in the freezer section at Publix Grocery store, I was immediately interested.
I dropped my slow cooker about a month ago and it shattered. Since then, I’ve been too depressed to make homemade soups.
With the Bertolli frozen soup, I just poured everything from the green and red package into a large pot on my stove.
I thoroughly enjoyed the flavor of the soup. It was not as salty as soups from a can.
Also, I’m sometimes not in the mood for a tomato-based soup.
This one was hearty with roasted white meat chicken, pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and celery.
I loved the chunks of yellow squash. There was plenty of corkscrew or rotini pasta, which made it seem like a “real meal.”
Since I had some leftovers, I decided to make it stretch by using some of the leftover produce I had in my refrigerator. By adding some fresh vegetables, I increased the fiber without adding too many additional calories.
I also added a splash of white wine and herbs for the leftovers.
Speaking of nutrition, I liked what I saw on the side in terms of nutritional facts.
The Bertolli frozen soup had 290 calories in a half package. It has 12 grams of fat, 4 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, 20 grams of protein and vitamins including A, C, Iron and Calcium.
Called a “premium” meal soup, the soup was in the frozen section by the frozen vegetables and other meals prepared on the stove.
It comes in a 24 ounce package.
I found the soup hearty and filling enough to eat for dinner. I paired it with white wine and a few of the Mary’s Gone Crackers.
For taste and quality, I give the Bertolli roasted chicken and rotini pasta soup a thumbs up.
I also recommend the Bertolli Chicken ala Vodka and Farfalle skillet meal.
