This is a super easy recipe from Giada De Laurentiis of the Food Network that will impress everyone when you present this yummy soup with delicate lacey cheese crisps! :)
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 8 cups low sodium chicken broth
- fresh ground black pepper
- 18 ounces fresh cheese tortellini
- 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped
- Parmesan Crisps:Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Pour a heaping tablespoon of Parmesan onto a silicone or parchment lined baking sheet and lightly pat down. (A silicone baking sheet works better).
- Repeat with the remaining cheese, spacing the spoonfuls about a 1/2 inch apart (make sure you make at least 8-10 heaps for at least 8 crisps).
- Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and crisp.
- Set aside to cool.
- Soup: While the crisps are cooling, pour the broth into a heavy large saucepan.
- Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Season the broth with pepper, to taste.
- Add the tortellini.
- Simmer over medium heat until al dente, about 7 minutes.
- Ladle the broth and tortellini into soup bowls.
- Garnish with parsley and top with Parmesan crisps just before serving.
So easy and so tasty! I really liked the crisp, but it was soft as soon as I put it in the broth. I have never had tortellini served in broth before, but it is very good. Make sure that you use a good quality broth! Made for my adopted chef for Fall Pac 2009. Thanks! :)
The soup was pretty basic, but the cheese crisps were tasty! I had to keep myself from eating all of them before the soup was done. Thanks!
