Tips, Tricks, and Variations

My kids made the decision to throw a little parmesan cheese on it, because, well, they are kids and cheese goes with everything.  I tried their version, and the verdict was that I liked it both ways.  Also, when I made this, I pureed everything with my immersion blender.   You could reserve a few of the larger pieces if you wanted to add a bit more texture to the soup.
