Zuppa Sarda (Sardinian Cheese and Egg Soup with Croutons)

“So easy, this cheesy Italian comfort food is done in about 20 minutes or so. The key is to use a low-sodium broth since the cheeses are a bit salty together. It's a good choice when there's a light chill in the air but you don't want something too heavy or complicated. It's not exactly low-cholesterol, but it's a delicious treat once in a while!”
