READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Luby Luby Luby

I found this recipe on another site and I believe it was CopyKat, but I'm not 100% sure. So if you were the kind person that posted this recipe please step forward and take the accolades for this wonderful soup. I did tweak it a bit by adding the minced garlic and the chicken broth because I found it to be a bit thick. The original recipe did not call for the salt, red, white & black pepper, but I found it needed the additional seasonings. I could only find chopped frozen broccoli in 10 ounce packages so I used a total of 20 ounces with no problems. This is comfort food at it's finest - warm, cheesy, flavorful and oh so good!

5 words say it all: "Don't bother me, I'm eating!" Easy recipe to make, and a lot of ways to tweak the taste. I used homemade chicken broth instead of canned, which added a great deal of depth to the flavor. Also reheats very well for leftovers the next day. Good stuff!
