I am all about dinners that look like I’ve spent hours in the kitchen, but in reality it’s been just minutes. I use pre-made products like Progresso Soup and bread from the bakery department to make what I like to call Semi-Homemade Dinners. Semi-Homemade Dinners are effortless, quick & easy, and delicious! Especially when I use tasty ingredients like Progresso Soup. They’ve done all of the hard work for me. I just add a couple of extra ingredients and call it done.
Recently I was at Walmart stocking up on Progresso Soup for Semi-Homemade Dinners. I noticed a few new varieties including Rich & Hearty Creamy Alfredo with Penne and Chicken. To me the word “hearty”= perfect for feeding my hungry Marine, so I picked up a few cans for dinner! Then I looked at the list of ingredients to get inspiration for the rest of my semi-homemade meal and Parmesan jumped out at me. I love pairing Parmesan with fresh basil and there it was, the makings of my Semi-Homemade Dinner.
You’ll need 5 things to make Progresso Soup and Parmesan Bread Bowls Semi-Homemade Dinner:
- 1 can Progresso Soup Rich & Hearty Creamy Alfredo with Penne and Chicken (Note: each can serves 2 people, so pick up as many cans as needed to feed your family.)
- Kaiser rolls, 1 per person (I picked these up in the deli department at Walmart.)
- Fresh basil
- Freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
- Olive oil
Here’s how I used these beautiful ingredients to make dinner for my family in minutes:
STEP 1: Preheat your oven broiler to medium. Heat soup as per the can directions. Place the kaiser rolls on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Using a paring knife at a slight angle, cut off the top of the kaiser rolls.
STEP 2: Remove the top of the rolls and brush the tops and insides with olive oil. Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese inside and on the tops of the rolls.
STEP 3: Place the bread bowls under the broiler and watch carefully as they toast for 30 seconds – 2 minutes, all depending on how toasted you like your bread bowls (I like mine pretty well toasted). Chop the basil leaves.
STEP 4: Plate the bread bowls, and spoon in the Progresso Soup. Top with Parmesan cheese, chopped basil, and serve!
And that’s it, my Progresso Soup and Parmesan Bread Bowls Semi-Homemade Dinner!
