Tortellini Soup With Parmesan Crisps

I am welcoming fall with is hearty but light soup. This soup comes together very fast. This soup is a meal by itself, but it is not heavy on stomach. Sky is the limit for ingredients for this soup as it can be made with loads of vegetables, meats, or even with beans; however my version is very simple and light, as I make it in light broth and with not many ingredients. I also cook Tortellini separately because I don't like my soup starchy.

Parmesan Crisps are the perfect with this soup. It is crispy, salty, and super tasty. I always add pinch of lemon zest to make them a little lighter, and give fragrance to it.

  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Parmesan Cheese, grated
