Today’s soup recipe is so darn good!
I enjoyed a bowl of it for lunch today, and realized I hadn’t shared this recipe with you yet.
Sorry to say…you’ve been missing out!
This delicious soup is very easy to make, and is equally tasty if you choose to use different types of cheeses. Use what you have on hand…a little parmesan or emmenthal, or mozzarella…but try to use combination of a mild and sharp cheese for best flavour.
And here is a great tip….
If you are making home made broth, save the veggies from your stock base and use them in this soup. It will cut down your cooking time so you can enjoy a bowl that much faster!
