Bertolli meals (or ways to trick people into thinking you’re a great cook)

September 28, 2012

Cheating never felt so good. Bertolli, which you might recognize from the grocery store for their sauces, JUST came out with a line of Classic Risottos and Meal Soups. Trust me, sometimes with my schedule the easier the meal, the better…which unfortunately hasn’t always translated well in the kitchen.

Truthfully, I’ve never tried this line before they sent their new launch to me and MAN these were a life-saver during Fashion Week…not only were they ridiculously easy (and quick!) to make, they tasted insanely good. The best part is, you don’t have to even add anything to the risottos…just warm on the stove and they just melt into buttery goodness. They’re available in two rich flavors, Roasted Chicken & Mushroom and Garlic Shrimp, and made with Italian rice, parmesan cheese, veggies and high-quality proteins. The only gripe I have is the ‘Meal for Two’ business on their packaging..because I easily finished one pack alone each time.

Roasted Chicken Risotto

And if you’re vegetarian or have food restrictions, I’d still try the mushroom asparagas chicken risotto (you can even pick out the chicken while it’s frozen and cook veggies and rice separately — it’s heavenly and makes a delicious side too!).

Just thought I’d share the good word.

    definitely delicious! love, love, love bertolli, but i’m gna be *that* girl and remind people to check the sodium on the package. it’s something like 40% of your daily value per serving so remember to portion it out! <3 BATF Shy!
