Recipe by evelynathens

Didn't want to change the title - sounds lovely in Italian, and the soup is too wonderful to call anything else! Remarkaby easy recipe for a dish that is so company-worthy. For those in need of a translation - it's an onion soup with Gorgonzola and prosciutto (told you it sounded better in Italian ;-) ).
