Very yummy and satisfying. I will be making this again, especially this winter.

The vegetables were tender. I was able to taste the raw flour even after it was cooked with the vegetables. I also did it with pepperjack cheese instead of cheddar. It may taste better if you used a white sauce made correctly.
