A note about serious food allergies
You don't have to be throwing a wedding, or Italian, to enjoy this soup. In fact, this soup doesn't need any preconditions or such to be absolutely delicious. Healthy, fresh kale gets cooked down and served with scrumptious tortellini (filled with five cheeses) and meaty meatballs, and topped off with a bit of heat and a bit of cheese. This soup is amazeballs, no nuptials or nationalities needed.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
