    It turned out very well. I unfortunately skimped on the quality of cheese. My fault on that one.

    It was really tasty!! Half of my family really liked it. My mother, who is the cook in our family, said it might be better if it is all blended together but I enjoyed it as is!

    Yum! Could have used more zip, but the flavor and texture were wonderful. I used half sharp cheddar and half Velveeta, so it was super smooth and creamy.

    Super yummy!! Definitely will make it again, if you like it more on the cheesy side then definitely add more cheese but if not then it’s perfect.

    it was delicious, i doubled the recipe and it turned out great. i only did 3 cups of cheddar instead of 4 for a doubled recipe. i don't like it really thick.

    Awesomeness! My 5 years old really liked it.

    It needs a little more seasoning, especially with store bought broth. I add Italian seasoning blend and a little turmeric and it's perfect. The cook times are spot on, especially if you like your vegetables al dente.

    the recipe was so easy to make and so delicious. the only thing i wouldn't do next time is adding salt because it was a bit salty.
