Quick Savory Cheese Soup

 Quick Savory Cheese Soup
This delicious soup recipe was shared by a friend and instantly became a hit with my husband. Its big cheese flavor blends wonderfully with the flavor of the vegetables. I first served this creamy soup as part of a holiday meal, but now we enjoy it throughout the year. -Dee Falk, Stromsburg, Nebraska
