    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!!

    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.!!!  -  26 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  22 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
