  • 9 ozs Day Old Bread, torn into pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Basil, chopped
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese, to taste

Pairing Notes:  We love this soup with Sangiovese because the hearty vegeatbles highlight the bright cherry in the wine.

Chef's Tip:  Alan leaves the bread out and serves his soup over pasta, Serena serves hers over sourdough croutons. Either way, it tastes delicious and defintiely don't skip on the grated parmesan,
