Bertolli Dinner for Two
I love these Bertolli Dinner for Two on nights that I don't have enough time to make a meal from scratch (or days when it is too hot to be in the kitchen long). I find for myself that the there is a bit too much sauce for the amount of pasta. I usually cook up about half a pound of pasta (I try and match the pasta used in the frozen meal.) Princess A does not like most sauces so I usually just give her the plain pasta with the veggies and meat picked out of the Bertolli Dinner. I add the rest of the pasta to the Bertolli Dinner and it is enough for all of us for dinner. We don't usually have leftover for DH to take to work but it is just enough for dinner. I give the girls some cut up fruit and veggies and make a salad for DH and myself. As for cooking I just pour the bag into a skillet, cover, stir once after 5 minutes and after another 5 minutes it is done. I mention this because around here the regular price is from $6.99 to $8.99. Today I went to Albertson's and if you buy the bags in increments of 5 bags you end up paying $4. The Bertolli Dinner for Two are $6 each but for every $15 you spend they take $5 off the total. So if you buy 5 @ $6 the total is $30 take $5 off twice and the total you pay is $20 for 5 meals. The last day for the deal is tomorrow.
