Nationality stereotyping aside, pasta dishes have always been a huge staple in our household. Although it is a close call with a few others, Bertolli is always comes out on top when it comes to choosing a sauce. Now, they’ve taken on a new venture.
Have you ever been at a loss for what to cook? Have you ever not had “the time” to cook a good, healthy meal for your family? Have you ever just wished that there were something simple – aside from boxed macaroni? Who am I kidding? Of course you have! We have all been there. Thankfully, Bertolli is here to help. The makers of our favorite go-to pasta sauce have brought us a solution, and a healthy one at that!
Continuing with their tradition to bring authentic Italian dining to your home with fresh-tasting, premium ingredients, Bertolli has just recently introduced a new line of family-friendly, quick and easy frozen meal Classic Risottos. Their classic Italian style meals for two offer a complete menu inspired by fine restaurants in Italy in the comfort of your own home. Quality cuts of meat, chicken or succulent shrimp paired with crisp vegetables and delicious rice, pasta or potatoes complete the recipes that include two rich flavors:
- Roasted Chicken Risotto
Italian rice and roasted white meat chicken with portabello mushrooms and asparagus in a parmesan cheese cream sauce
- Garlic Shrimp Risotto
Italian rice and garlic shrimp with zucchini, yellow squash and red peppers in a white wine sauce
Bertolli has also added to their already amazing line of Meal Soups. Up until now, consumers have been able to enjoy Chicken Minestrone, Roasted Chicken and Rotini Pasta, Tomato Florentine and Tortellini with Chicken, and Tuscan-Style Beef with Vegetables. Two new flavors have been introduced and include:
- Italian-Style Wedding
Mini Italian-style meatballs with spiach, bacon pieces, carrots and ditalini pasta in a savory broth
- Ricotta & Lobster Ravioli in a Seafood Bisque
Ricotta and lobster-filled ravioli with diced celery and carrots in a rich seafood bisque
With two little ones in our house, anything that includes vegetables is typically a 1-2-3-or-else-bed battle but I was thrilled to see how much they enjoyed it. It was one of the very few times that their plates were cleared (veggies included) without a fuss. The best part? It’s out of the freezer and onto your plate within twenty minutes! It is the perfect go-to meal when you’re short on time. Now, technically, they are each a “meal for two” but with four mouths to feed, we also chose to use it alongside some parmesan peppercorn grilled chicken. I love how versatile it is – main course dinner, side dish, and perfect for lunch. I was so glad that my family and I got to give these a try and, now, one lucky Eighty MPH Mom reader will get to try them as well! You’ll never have to go out to enjoy great Italian any night of the week!
