"I added broccoli and instead of making the cheese sauce, I cheated and used a combination of a can of cheddar cheese soup and a can of cream of mushroom soup and we liked it."

"WAY too much sodium!! Leave out the salt, use no salt butter if you must use butter and low fat low sodium cheese. One serving of this recipe is half of a day's allowance of sodium."
