I made my own broth using 2 chickens with only white meat left on them, celery, garlic and onions and then used that as the base for the soup.

I usually just add whatever vegetables I have in my fridge for this dish and adjust the recipe accordingly.

Ham works, too. I used 3 slices of ham the first time I made the recipe.

I usually use Fontina cheese for this recipe but the only cheese I had today was the grated Parmesan so that's what I used.
