Comfort food, family time, heartwarming, healthy, well balanced meal, quick and easy. I am always seeking for a dish that fulfills all of those descriptive words. And sometimes it is really hard, really really hard. But I discovered that with Progresso® Light Soups, it isn’t that hard. Soup really brings to mind comfort and heartwarming and family, with Progresso® Light Soups such as their Light Italian Style Meatball or their Light Italian Style Vegetable and this simple cheesy garlicky bread I can have a perfectly well balanced healthy meal in no time. Throw in a side salad and you have it made but your soup covers your vegetables because it is packed with pasta, vegetables, a light tomato base broth, and meatballs.
Our family loves to gather around the table to eat together. And we have fun cooking together too. Preparing this cheesy garlicky bread together was simple; while I was slicing the bread Craig was grating cheese. I slathered on the garlic butter, stuffed mozzarella cheese in, popped my cheesy garlicky bread into the oven for 20 minutes while our soup simmered, and then we were ready to sit down together. Progresso® Light Soup is just the right amount for two of us. We laughed over grabbing and pulling the bread while the other was grabbing and pulling off pieces too. We gobbled almost the whole loaf down in one sitting, it was so good.
Craig dipped his bread in his Progresso® Light Italian Style Meatball soup while I ate mine on the side. Either way it was cheesy and garlicky with a crunchy outside and soft inside. All heartwarming, healthy, well balanced, quick, easy comfort food for you, me, your family, and mine. And I think that is what we all want as we gather around the family dinner table.

Did you know Progresso® Soups are part of the Box Tops for Education? I didn’t but my granddaughter did and she was pretty excited for me to share my Box Tops with her for her classroom. Box Tops for Education have been another part of our family since my children were in school. We have been collecting Box Tops for Education for maybe 20 years, even when I didn’t have any children in school, I just shared with friends’ children – they were so excited. Now I make sure to clip, save, and mail them to my granddaughter, it’s easy and a good thing.
