The end of Parmesan

No parm has not dissapeared from our lives..But those little ends, you can't get anymore cheese from,,,What do you do with them?
Me a big pot of minestrone, of bean soup any kind of soup for that matter..Add that rind. It will get soft and gooey and oh so yummy..My boys use to elbow each other over it. Now everybody is happy..Now I find, I can still save mine but yesterday for a dollar, I got a dozen parm ends at the grocery store...So, if you had some what would you do with yours? In a nice mac and cheese, I've even surprised them and put it in a stew..Yep stew..
Now surprise me with your ideas.

i just grate mine on the micoplane right down to nothing. i do cut off the blue stamp dye, it isn't very appealing to me. if there is a tiny piece left my girl or i just eat it. BUT i have used it by shaving it thin and use it for stuffing my artichoke leaves. (btw i posted my recipe for stuffed artichokes in the veggie forum)

Rind? Leftover ends? What are you talking about? I didn't see any leftover ends. What do mean my breath smells like cheese?
