Wonderful recipe for a hearty bowl of Broccoli Cheddar Soup. This soup is not our traditional Broccoli Soup. It has chicken and pasta and loaded with cheese. A perfect bowl of soup for a cold winter day.
How to make Broccoli Cheddar Soup-
- Saute the onions, carrots, celery and chicken. Add to a pot with water and chicken broth and bring to a soft boil.
- Cook broccoli and pasta.
- Add the broccoli, pasta and cheese to the pot.
- Cook until cheese melts. Season soup.
Can I substitute the Cheese?
Yes, you can substitute Velveeta Cheese for a Sharp or Mild Cheddar or a combination of both. If substituting cheese, add 8-12 oz of cheese.
Velveeta cheese can be very “cheesy” so the amount you add is totally up to you. Start with 16 oz of cheese, continue adding cheese to taste. We add about 20 oz.)
Can I leave out the pasta?
Yes, the pasta is optional and will not affect the outcome of the soup. Either omit the pasta completely or add less pasta.
