Parmesan wafers are original baskets that can be easily prepared in just a few minutes! You can fill them in many ways to bring a delicious and different appetizer to the table. The Parmesan wafer should obviously be eaten together with the other ingredients... or last!
You can also use these wafers to serve risotto or a salad, certainly adding a touch of extra flavor.
