Food tip: Progresso Recipe Starters

Published February 21. 2013 4:00AM

I have a couple of goals when doing the weekly shopping: buy only items on sale or that I have a coupon for, and plan some meals that can be thrown together quickly after work. Food companies have noticed that we're all too busy to spend hours over the stove so there are options out there much better than Hamburger Helper. Recently I tried a few of the Progresso Recipe Starters and Skillet Sauces from Campbell's. I won't buy the latter again, but the chicken pot pie recipe with Progresso's creamy roasted garlic sauce was plenty good enough. You just need some refrigerated pie crusts, flour, chicken and a bag of frozen veggies (I get something with potatoes because that's popular with the kids). Thirty minutes in the oven and you have a tasty meal.
