Add the beef broth, water, salt, garlic powder and pepper to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil. When soup begins to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
When the soup is done, place a slice of bread in bottom of an oven safe bowl and spoon about 1-2 cups into them . Float a few croutons on top of the soup, then place a slice of provolone or swiss cheese on top of the crouton. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of shredded parmesan cheese over the provolone. Place the bowl into your oven set to high broil.

Broil the soup for 5 to 6 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown. Sprinkle an additional ½  teaspoon of shredded parmesan cheese over the top of the soup and serve.
