Ribollita - is it a soup or a casserole?
I was in Florence recently, looking forward to having some authentic Tuscan dishes, especially Ribollita. However, I never did have it. I did speak to some Americans who had it there and they said it was very thick--like a casserole/bread pudding. They said you could eat it with a fork. Most of the recipes I've come across are more like soups--like minestrone with bread in it.
