    I made this with a few changes. I used frozen broccoli as I had a time restriction. I also used more velveeta than the recipe called for( I doubled it.) I also used vegetable stock instead of the water. I used more stock and omitted the milk. It was very good and thick which is what we like. - 10/5/07

    Skip the Velveeta and grate low fat cheddar on top. Pureed the veggies for extra thick soup. - 1/10/08

  • if you cook this one on the stovetop watch it very close after you add the cheese or make sure you are cooking on a low setting! the cheese burned to the bottom of the pan only being cooked on medium after 3 minutes not being stirred. - 3/16/10
