Bertolli Giveaway

Now that fall is here, what better time then to fill our stomachs with warm, hearty, and satisfying soups? There's nothing better than a toasty roll or grilled cheese sandwich dipped into a delicious steaming bowl of soup. Soup is a definite comfort food.



In 1865, in the town of Lucca, Francesco Bertolli opened a small storefront business selling regional foods such as olive oil, wine, cheese and olives. In the late 1800s, Italian immigrants in America, unable to find the products to which they were accustomed, wrote to Bertolli asking for crates of olive oil. In reply, Bertolli sent orders to America and thus became the first exporter of olive oil. From its beginnings in olive oil, Bertolli has grown to include a broad range of restaurant-quality pasta sauce and skillet meals. Today, more than 140 years since Francesco Bertolli began selling his olive oil in Lucca, Italy, the original "Villa Bertolli" at piazza S. Donato still stands, just as Bertolli remains at the heart of the authentic Italian cuisine enjoyed at home by millions of families around the world.

Bertolli has a fantastically yummy line of products which includes:
Classic Italian Frozen Meals
Mediterranean Style Frozen Meals
Oven Bake Frozen Meals
Pasta Sauce
Olive Oil

I've had the pleasure of sampling the oven bake frozen meals and I give two thumbs up in approval. I also always use Bertolli pasta sauce. It's a regular staple in my house.

Bertolli recently introduced a line of premium meal soups for two. Bertolli uses only the freshest ingredients in these delicious and easy-to-prepare meals. The restaurant-quality soups are full of crisp vegetables, cooked chicken or beef, and pasta that leaves you feeling satisfied.



Bertolli® Premium Meal Soups for Two are available in 24 oz. packages, and with the addition of one cup of water, yield 32 oz. of mouthwatering soup. The soups are available in the frozen aisle of grocery retailers nationwide, including Walmart and Target, and are offered in four appetizing varieties:

Chicken Minestrone - Roasted white meat chicken, beans, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, tomatoes and pasta in a hearty vegetable broth

Roasted Chicken & Rotini Pasta - Roasted white meat chicken, pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and celery in a savory chicken broth

Tomato Florentine & Tortellini with Chicken - Cheese-filled tortellini, white meat chicken, spinach and tomatoes in a rich tomato bisque with a hint of basil

Tuscan-Style Beef with Vegetables - Tender beef, mushrooms, yellow squash, zucchini, carrots and celery with bowtie pasta in a savory broth

Which one sounds the best to you? I'm a huge fan of tortellini, so I'm always game for a bowl of tomato florentine and tortellini with chicken. Yum Yum! These soups would be a wonderful and quick meal for you and your significant other on a cold night.

One lucky winner will win a Bertolli prize pack including:
Two Tasting Certificates for Bertolli Premium Meal Soup for Two
Stainless steel soup ladle
Woven oval bread basket
Bertolli reusable freezer bag
