I love to pour alot of grated pecorino on. It melts into the soup and gets so stringy. Love it!
I put basil in the soup, but I also love to serve with some fresh coriander. It adds a fresh, crunchy texture to the dish.
What I love about this soup is that it always turns out different each time I make it. I don't follow a recipe so the quantities of different are always different. One day the celery might be cooked until they're extra soft. Another day they might retain some of their crispness. I might add zucchini or speck. I might not use chilli flakes but add fresh cut chillies afterwards. I might add more different vegetables and not add pasta. It's always a different dish and that's why I love it.
Tonight I made it so that it was mostly risoni, with some carrots and celery through it.
I could sit and eat this all day.
With lots of cheese and a large glass of red wine.
