  • Perfect Pairs: Soup & Sammies

    There are whole articles and blogs and books dedicated to the pairing of wine and food. The same goes for beer and munchies … but what about soup?

    Some soups just go really fabulously with certain flavors. So, when I was thinking up a new sandwich, I created it with a tasty soup in mind.

    So, what’s the pairing? Progresso High Fiber Chicken Tuscany Soup goes really well with my Italian Panini Quesadilla.

    The sandwich has the flavors of a great Italian panini but trades the bread for tortillas. I love the saltiness of the prosciutto with sharp provolone, tangy marinated artichoke hearts and sweet roasted red peppers. But if you aren’t a fan of sharp provolone, trade it for mild provolone or much milder mozzarella.

    Here are four more fab ideas for pairing soups with sammies:

    Progresso Vegetable Classics Tomato Rotini Soup would be delicious with a slice of Chicken Caesar Sandwich Ring.

    Progresso Vegetable Classics French Onion Soupgoes beautifully with “Healthified” Turkey Artichoke Panini.  

    Progresso Rich & Hearty New England Clam Chowder would be super tasty with Fish Hero Sandwiches.

    Progresso Traditional Italian-style Wedding Soup would be super with a Grilled Chicken, Goat Cheese, Tomato and Basil Panini.
