As others have also mentioned, I save my hard Italian cheese rinds & add them to various soups - Escarole & Bean, Minestrone, Vegetarian Vegetable, Chicken Vegetable - you name it.

Just keep in mind that if you're adding a large piece of rind to taste before salting, as the rind does add salt.

Minestrone is the classic, but I also throw them in large batches of risotto, and preety much anything that could benefit from a deeper background taste but not so much grated cheese!

Yes, indeed a rind from Parmigiano is a wonderful flavour booster for brothes (especially for risotto), my initial suggestion to Ayrton was for Pasta e Fagioli. It is indeed a wonderful addition to this classic Italian comfort food. These days I can't believe I used to simply toss that stuff in rubbish!!
