Campbell's Select Harvest Light Minestrone with Whole Grain Pasta Soup Review

Campbell's Select Harvest Light Minestrone with Whole Grain PastaWe have reviewed quite a few varieties of Campbell's Select Harvest Light Soups and most have been pretty good. One that I hadn't tried before was Campbell's Select Harvest Light Minestrone with Whole Grain Pasta, and so on a cold rainy day, that's what I selected to warm my tummy.

What intrigued me most about this soup, before even opening the can, were the lentils that I spotted in the picture on the packaging. Lentils are not a customary addition in the canned soup world, but I love these protein-packed legumes. I heated up this veggie-filled soup and then carried my mug of warmth with me as I curled up on the couch and flipped on a seasonal chick flick.

This is most definitely a broth based soup (hence the reason it can be so light), but it is also chock-full of vegetables (tomatoes, spinach, zucchini and red peppers to name a few). The lentils and whole grain pasta are cooked to a delightful al dente texture and most definitely take this soup out of the boring, trite vegetable soup category. What else makes this soup something special? The broth! It is so incredibly flavorful without being too salty or overpowering. The flavor is somewhere between a chicken and vegetable broth, doctored up with spices and a touch of extra virgin olive oil to create a Mediterranean flair.

Each 1 cup serving of Campbell's Select Harvest Light Minestrone with Whole Grain Pasta Soup provides contains 80 calories, 1% of the daily value for total fat, 480 mg sodium (20% of the DV), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 4 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein. The MSG-free, 100% natural ingredient list is very understandable.

I paid $1.79 for an 18.6 oz can of Campbell's Select Harvest Light Minestrone with Whole Grain Pasta and I would definitely buy this soup again. If you are not a fan of lentils, perhaps Campbell's Select Harvest Light Vegetable Beef & Barley Soup would suit your fancy, as it's also pretty good.
