Progresso Light Italian Style Meatball Soup

Progresso sent me a few soups to try out and review. I decided to go with a flavor that was NOT chicken, and so reached for Progresso Light Italian Style Meatball Soup. This soup is 1 Weight Watchers Point and the packaging points out that has 33% less calories than regular ready-to-serve soups.

I must say this soup was delightful. After tasting the first spoonful, I thought, "I need to add a little salt," But nnowing that I tend to consume way too much salt than is good for me, I just kept eating. You know what - this needs no salt, no nothing. There is a pleasant tomato flavor from the broth - not too strong, just a little more than a hint and enough to say hello! The meatballs were small but numerous, along with the penne & vegetables. A note on the vegetables though - as usual they were bland and indistinct ... similar to a few other Progresso Light Soups I reviewed recently over at CalorieCount.com. But I still loved the flavor of the soup.

Progresso Light Italian Style Meatball Soup

Each 1 cup serving of Progresso Light Italian Style Meatball Soup provides 80 calories from 2 grams of total fat, 20% of the daily value of sodium (480 mg), 2 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar and 3 grams of protein.

This is one of my favorite Progresso Light Soup varieties. I have bought Progresso soups for $1.50 and $2.50, so the price is reasonable and I would buy this one again. I had this for lunch with a Lean Cuisine Chicken Spinach and Mushrooms Panini and I was quite satisfied.
