I should first forewarn that I made a lot of variations, never even followed this recipe once, so I don't know what it tastes like origianally. It sounded way to bland for my and my family's palate.
I made it for serving 8 (I have a family of 4 and we only had one serving left, which I took to work the next day).
Instead of water I used beef broth.
Added 2 tsp of minced garlic
1T of diced dehydrated onion (don't use fresh, my preferrance)
Couple shakes of red pepper flakes
Omitted black pepper
For the sauce to stir in at the end I...
Used 2 cups milk rather than the 2-2/3 that it called for(remember I made the soup to serve 8) I wanted a thicker sauce to stir in, the soup looked thin
I added the cheese to the sauce and extra at that, and it turned out just like a rich cheese sauce.
Then I poured the cheese sauce into the soup and stirred.
My soup turned out FANTASTIC. My whole family loved it, leaving only one serving for left overs. I will make again, and again, and again. We served with bread, it made for a nice warm filling meal.
