Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place heaping spoonfuls of shredded parmesan cheese 1/2 inch apart on the baking sheet. Sprinkle each spoonful with black pepper.
Bake 4 to 6 minutes until cheese is crisp and golden brown. Let cool. Serve crisps on top of, or crumbled into warmed soup.
