Simple Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Soup

This simple broccoli cheese soup can be made in 30 minutes.  I’m serious.  I’m not joking around.  Rachael Ray should have made this soup on her 30 minute meal show.

This is my go to recipe for taking dinner to a friend or new mother.  This soup paired with my Simple Homemade Bread is the perfect combo.  My kids beg for this soup.  I want to thank my sister in law Shelly for giving me this recipe over 15 years ago.  You have made our life better, now I hope to make your life better.
