Now, this is happy news. However, I thought I had more time to clean-up the house and prepare a special meal for my husband. So I run to the grocery store to see what inspires me. I found something new in the freezer section from Bertolli - Meal Soups. OK. It says it cooks in about 5 minutes. Sounds perfect! I choose the Chicken Minestrone and off I went.
The directions say to add the package contents into a soup pot along with one cup of water and bring to a boil.
While that was getting started I walked around the house picking up the dogs toys that were laying about and the odd sock here and there that my daughter had left behind. (One sock?)
Next, I put a lid on the pot and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. During that time I brought out a tablecloth and a lovely tray of candles, to help make the dinner a little more special. After 5 minutes I did a taste test and found the broth to be a wonderful combination of tomatoes and spices. Not too salty, which is what I find in most prepared soups. The Chicken Minestrone tasted wonderful. The pasta was perfectly Al Dente and the chicken was moist! Wonderful surprise.
