Cioppino, a fish stew that originated in San Francisco with Italian immigrants, is filled with lobster, fish and clams or mussels. Top each bowl with a generous sprinkling of Sargento® Shaved Parmesan Cheese. Serve with croutons or slices of sourdough or French bread.

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz.) reduced-sodium or regular chicken broth
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 oz. each) Italian-style stewed tomatoes, undrained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. hot pepper sauce
  • 8 oz. cooked lobster meat or imitation lobster, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 8 oz. firm white-fleshed fish such as snapper or halibut, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 12 fresh small clams or mussels, scrubbed
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Garlic croutons (optional)
  1. Heat oil in large skillet. Add onion and garlic; cook 4 minutes or until tender. Add broth, tomatoes with liquid, wine, basil, thyme and pepper sauce. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes.
