Thoughts Before Cooking:

So I have been wanting to make this tortellini soup recipe for quite some time now. I actually have two pinned on pinterest, and chose one of them.

I picked one and then went to pick up all the ingredients, not realizing that the recipe also included the side dish crostini. But since I had everything, I made them too. This recipe comes from The Yellow Bliss Road blog.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Baguette
  • Butter
  • Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

  1. Slice baguette into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  2. Butter one side and place butter side down in a hot skillet until golden brown.
  3. Flip bread slices over and sprinkle with Parmesan while the other side gets golden brown.
  4. Transfer to a plate and immediately cover loosely with foil if cheese has not completely melted.
