This is a great family recipe!! The kids loved it (I'd made extra, and I'm lucky I did; as my fairly picking 7 year old asked for it the next day!) I did make some changes though; to make it a bit better to our taste. We'd added a bit of garlic when sauteing the onions; and a bit of diced mushrooms (which the kids hate but we love); a bit of zucchini; and a little brocoli; as well as some potatos (added about 6 medium/large potatoes for a double recipe.) Blended up; the kids ate all the veggies; no worries; we'd blended about 3/4 of the soup; made for a thick; but still slightly chucky, soup. We'd added the cheese to individual bowls to help with cleanup (as it takes forever to scrub cheese out of a pot!) Also; instead of using ham or chicken broth - we'd gotten a smoked pork hock and covered it with water; and simmered that for half an hour or so. Then removed the pork hock and cut all the meat off of it to use in place of the ham. And the water used to boil the hock in - instead of draining it out; we'd used that instead of chicken broth; and topped up whatever was nessesary with water and chicken stock powder. Really nice flavour; really hearty; warming, soup; perfect winter/fall meal!
