Ladle hot soup into six over proof soup bowls. Place slice of dry French bread on top of each. Add a slice of Swiss or Mozzarella cheese and sprinkle top with parmesan cheese. Place bowls in over for ten minutes at 425 degrees or in microwave. Turn oven up to broil, and broil for about four minutes until cheese is lightly browned.
