Cold weather has our thoughts turning to comforting soups and broths. This recipe was developed by our own Chef Lorenzo Boni, and is inspired by Ramen and Sunday soups made with family in his home town of Bologna, Italy.

Chef Lorenzo uses left over parmesan cheese rinds (Parmigiano) which add depth to the ramen broth through their umami flavor qualities. Lorenzo also cooks the whole grain noodles directly in the broth allowing the starches in the pasta to impart additional flavor.

This chicken ramen is garnished with artichoke hearts, blistered tomatoes, shredded cheese, fresh parsley, and a perfectly jammy egg.
