Left overs of this soup are very thick. Here's a fun way to re-use the left overs. Mix in some flour to the room temp soup until it becomes workable. Form patties and flour the surface. Fry gently in olive oil until a crust forms.
Sauce with tomato sauce and garnish with Parmesan and/or Romano cheese.
