Cheesy Vegetable Soup Recipe

Cheesy Vegetable Soup Recipe

My husband's a grain farmer who is definitely a "meat and potatoes" man. He likes soup on a chilly day, though. Served with warm bread, this makes for a quick but hearty noontime meal. Along with our children, 10 and 5, we live 5 miles from town. I wouldn't trade country life for a million bucks!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 45 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter

"Have been making this recipe for years. However I don't put in the cheese. It's a family favorite."
