Unilever North America, Englewood Cliffs, N.J., rolls out Bertolli Premium Meal Soups for Two, a line of frozen but fresh-tasting, hearty meal soups reminiscent of flavors coming from kitchens of notable Italian chefs. You add one cup of water, and it yields 21-oz. of soup featuring tender chicken and beef, al dente pasta, fragrant herbs and crisp vegetables, such as zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes.

They are available in 24-oz. packages nationwide in four varieties: Chicken Minestrone (roasted white meat chicken, beans, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, tomatoes and pasta in a vegetable broth), Roasted Chicken & Rotini Pasta (roasted white meat chicken, pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and celery in a chicken broth), Tomato Florentine & Tortellini with Chicken (cheese-filled tortellini, white meat chicken, spinach and tomatoes in a tomato bisque with a hint of basil) and Tuscan-Style Beef with Vegetables (beef, mushrooms, yellow squash, zucchini, carrots and celery with bowtie pasta in a savory broth).

"Bertolli Premium Meal Soups for Two offer the heartiness and fresh taste of a soup that you would expect from an authentic Italian restaurant," says Rachel Porges, brand manager. "Soups are a cornerstone of the Italian cuisine that Bertolli celebrates. [Now] everyone can enjoy a warm, flavorful meal in just minutes – without painstaking preparation or sacrificing flavor."
