- If you don’t have a hand-held immersion blender, you can pour the soup in a blender and puree it in there.
- Use low sodium broth to prevent this meal from becoming too salty.
- Fresh garnish enhances flavor and either of these are a great choice: Fresh cilantro, basil, rosemary, chives.
- For maximum cheese flavor, use cheese tortellinis and also add lots of freshly grated parmesan cheese on top, prior to serving.
- For vegetarian version, use vegetable broth and use soy cheeses and thick coconut milk instead of heavy cream. However, coconut has a strong flavor and will alter the flavor greatly. Another substitute for heavy cream is dairy-free half and half, which won’t affect the flavor drastically.
