Panera Bread Broccoli Cheddar Soup

“I can't tell you if this is like Panera Bread or not because I've never been there, but this is a good soup. I added a little salt and pepper and red pepper to spice it up, but the recipe doesn't call for it. Recipe from www.lynnskitchenadventures.com (she came up with this recipe by trying several online recipes and taking what she liked from each to come up with the closest Panera copycat). Serving size is estimated.”
