Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup
I made this soup last night. My family couldn't stop raving about how good it tasted. I did do some changes after reading some of the reviews. I made the thickening mixture and added it to the pot at the end. I used creamer rather than the light cream. In addition to the cheddar cheese, I added 4-5 ounces of velveta cheese. Also, I added the garlic powder, chopped onions and cut back the butter to about half. Instead of using fresh broccoli, I only had frozen (thawed). Still turned out great.I added the broccoli for the last 5 minutes to prevent it from over cooking. Between bites, I asked my family if I should perhaps try adding potato chunks next time.......My husband told me not to mess with how I made it. He is quite a cook himself, so that was a compliment! The broth was a bit thin at first,and I had hoped there would be some left over to see if it would get thicker the next day.....but no such luck! I would highly recommend this one! One note.......I think it might be good served in a bread bowl!

Penne with Pancetta, Tuna, and White Wine
I enjoyed this, but would suggest using chicken or steak rather than tuna. I might try using other vegetables rather than peas for a change of flavor. It was a bit dry for our taste. I suggest using some chicken, beef or vegetable broth to the mixture.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
We LOVED this soup...even my teenage son said it was a keeper. I made some changes. Instead of canned tomatoes, I used canned tomato sauce. I didn't put any zuccini in it either. During the last 8 minutes or so, I added frozen cheese tortilli vs the fresh tortilli. The leftovers didn't last past the next day.
