This dish was easy to fix and had a very Italian taste. We lived in Rome for a number of year and the flavor brought back many happy memories.

I had a craving for Garlic Soup, even though it is very hot here in NYC. However, your soup hit the spot and was delicuous. I liked the added touch using toasted bread (which I broke up into smaller pieces) and the parmesan cheese on top.
