    It was wonderful. Hubby will only eat velvetta! How can people be so rude to give low ratings when they have changed the original recipe so much it is not the same. No wonder they did not like it. Be nice folks, taste is subjective and what you have grown used too. - 2/1/09

    I used some of the suggestions from previous posts. Instead of the margarine, I used a half-tablespoon of vegetable oil and Fat Free/Less Sodium Chicken broth. Everyone enjoyed the soup. The thing I will change next time is not to completely puree the broccoli, I would like some texture. - 2/3/09

    I think it's important we all keep in mind that the presentation of a recipe that includes margarine and processed cheese on SP does not mean that SP advocates a diet full of these foods. These things are fine in very lmtd quantities--might we think of this as an "occasional" instead of "staple"? - 1/26/09
