Bertolli Gourmet Frozen Meals Review and Giveaway!!


After a long day of work-be it household chores and taking care of the children, or a regular "job"-the last thing you want to do is fuss over a meal, right? And yet, you want the best for your family. A home cooked meal, not fast food. Real ingredients, not artificial ingredients that taste...well...artificial! If this is a conundrum you're familiar with, then I must bring something to your attention. Bertolli Frozen Meals! Before you stop reading and ask how on earth I can consider a frozen meal to be a good substitute for home-cooked on those busy days we all have, please just keep reading and you'll discover I am justified in this claim.
I received coupons to try Bertolli's 2 newest Risotto meals and 2 soups. These are: Garlic Shrimp Risotto, Roasted Chicken Risotto, Italian Wedding Style Soup, and Ricotta and Lobster Ravioli in Seafood Bisque. 

After getting all these delicious meals back to the house, I cooked up the Roasted Chicken Risotto for the 2 of us who were home for dinner that evening. I was surprised to see that the sauce is frozen into chunks; these thaw and turn into a rich, creamy sauce during cooking.



It only takes 10-12 minutes to turn this bag of frozen ingredients into a steaming hot, very appetizing meal for 2. Strips of chicken are paired with mushrooms, asparagus and Italian rice. All blended together in a parmesan cream cheese sauce. This is absolutely delicious, and is my favorite out of the meals. 

The second meal I tried was the Italian Wedding Style Soup. Again, I was surprised and impressed with the made-from-scratch-at-home flavor! Mini meatballs, spinach, bacon pieces, carrots and ditalini pasta float in a rich, savory broth. While I'm not much of a soup person (if it's not tomato basil or broccoli and cheese, I usually won't have very much) the 2 of us polished off the entire pot of soup in one sitting!




I haven't yet tried the other 2 Bertolli meals, but I am sure they will be just as delightful as the rest. These have been added to my grocery list for future shopping trips!


2 of my readers will each win 2 coupons for free Bertolli Frozen Meals!!
