Pancetta adds bold flavor to this smooth, savory soup. Pair with toast or a small green salad for a light and filling weeknight meal.
4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups soup and about 1 1/2 teaspoons gremolata)
1. To prepare soup, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add pancetta; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in onion, celery, and 2 teaspoons garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until almost tender. Stir in broth and next 4 ingredients (through bay leaf). Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. To prepare gremolata, combine parsley, rind, and 1 teaspoon garlic. Sprinkle over soup.
