Holy Moly, Skillet Meals by Bertolli!
As ES’s resident microwave expert, I’m constantly looking for shortcuts to make cooking faster because frankly, sometimes I come home after work and I just don’t want to devote 1 or 2 hours to prepping and cooking dinner.
So recently, we were sent some of Bertolli’s new Skillet Meals, and let me tell you, in complete seriousness, they are AWESOME!!! Located in the Frozen Food aisle (maybe my favorite aisle in the grocery store I’ll admit) the Bertolli Skillet Meal provides a complete meal for two, ranging from Shrimp Scampi Linguine to Chicken alla vodka and Farfelle to Italian Sausage and Rigatoni – and all you have to do is throw it in a Skillet for TEN MINUTES! And that’s it!! It’s ready! And I swear to you it’s soooo freaking good. I even got Vio into it (she says she CRAVES it now!!) and if she says it’s good, then believe me, it is!
I also love it because all of the meals contain vegetables, such as asparagus, tomatoes and zucchini – and the ingredient list contains no scary five syllable words that you’ve never heard of, it’s all straight forward, good ingredients. I would prefer if they offered a meal with whole wheat pasta, but for a frozen meal, this is TOPS! Plus on their website, they even provide wine pairings for each meal. Bertolli is definitely frozen food gone classy!
Do they offer a vegetarian option?
Wasn’t this the product that Rocco was pimping on Top Chef last season (the challenge where they had to come up with a recipe, par-cook it and then freeze it so it could be made later)?
aaaah, you are so right JoeHoya – forgot about that
I WISH they had vegetarian ones, but they don’t – only seafood for us attempting to be veg
I should give these another chance. I once tried the chicken alla vodka and it really put me off.
