I love planning and making delicious meals for my family, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy take out, an occasional pepperoni pizza or a hack meal—which is one made from what I find in the pantry. That’s when my staples from Walmart come in.  A few favorites that can help me get great comfort food on the table for real life. Because real life is messy and unpredictable and some meals need to come together fast and easy. 

A few things I always have in the pantry are Prego® Tomato Basil sauce. It’s such a great life saver and tastes homemade. Sautee veggies, add pasta and top with Prego® Italian Sauce and dinner is done. Campbell’s® Condensed Chicken Noodle Soup has saved me a few times when I realized I had nothing in the fridge. Now, I always have these items stocked along with pasta, and quinoa. That way I know when there isn’t time, I can still pull a pretty good dinner out of my mama hat for my family.

classic combo of grilled cheese and tomato soup gets a fun twist with a fancy grilled cheese and Cambell's tomato soup

The classic tomato soup and grilled cheese combo gets a fancy twist with gruyere and swiss cheeses. I also add basil and a dollop of cream to the soup. Is there anything better than dipping a perfectly melted cheese into a steamy tomato soup?


2 can of Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato Soup

2 slices of  bread

1 tbs olive oil

1 handful of shredded gruyere

1 handful of shredded swiss


While your soup is simmering on the stove following the directions on the label, take out a pan and drizzle olive oil. Place your bread on the pan and wait for the bread to toast. Remove from the pan and carefully add shredded cheese to each piece. Place the cheese on the grilled side of the bread, then combine to make a sandwich and place back onto the pan. You may need to add more olive oil. Grill until cheese has melted. Cut in half and enjoy. I highly recommend dipping the sandwich into the soup!

What are some of your favorite comfort food meals for back to school?
