Very good soup. I added some celery and mushrooms. Followed the recipe to the letter - even using shredded cheddar cheese ~ which is something I don't use too often in soups b/c it tends to give soups a gritty texture instead of a creamy texture. Next time, I think I'll ditch the cheddar and use some velveeta instead but it was still very good and this recipe proves that soups containing only veggies are still very tasty!! Thanks Jackie!!

For some reason my cheese seperated into clump and caused it to be a gritty texture. But, wow did anyone notice the fat and calorie count for this recipe??? All I can say is WOW 55 grams of fat a serving!!!!

I needed to make a stick to the bones kind of soup and this was excellent and easy. I also added mushrooms, celery and fresh string beans. My family absolutely loved it and had to make a double batch the next time I made it. I also used 2% milk and half cheddar cheese and half american cheese to give it a more smooth texture. Great recipe. Bon apetit.!!!

I really loved this soup! But I must admit I tweaked it a little...I put a mixture of velveeta and cheddar in it but not the full 2 cups it calls for. I also added galic to the soup instead of the bread crumbs. I substituded milk instead of half and half. I'm not sure, but I think half and half would have made it REALLY thick. Extremely tastful...loved it!

My whole family (4 children and husabnd) loved this soup. I used evap milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and I pureed the broccoli. My 6 year old will not eat broccoli. It did turn the color a bit green but once you add the cheese it is not so noticable. She was the one who declared, "This is the best soup ever!!!" Great recipe.

This creamy soup is absolutely delicious! If you have a food processor or some kind of chopper, the vegetable preparation goes really quick. We used fresh veggies in our soup, and it was wonderful! Definitely what comes to mind when you think of hearty, homemade, comfort soups. This will be a family favorite from now on!! Great recipe!!!

This soup does indeed taste great. However, I'd recommend cutting down on the butter significantly. There's so much dairy in the soup that it overwhelms the vegetables.

Very good! I did use Velveeta as suggested by another reviewer. Next time I'll try it with milk instead of 1/2 & 1/2 as it was a little rich. Also added green beans and peas for extra veggies.
