Parmesan Rosemary Biscotti

Chef Jill Holland gives the traditional biscotti her unique twist by making a savory Parmesan Rosemary Biscotti. Perfect to pair with A Spoon Full of Hope Tomato Basil Soup for Good for a comforting lunch or light dinner. 

The crisp texture is accented by the richness of Parmesan, the fragrance of rosemary and added depth of flavor from tomato paste. Perfect for nibbling and dunking into your soup. The kitchen will smell amazing as they bake and don't forget to save the pine nuts and crumbles that fall off when you slice the biscotti. Add as a crumbled topping to your bowl and take tomato soup to the next level!
