Nothing really wow-ed me about this recipe, but it was a good last-minute dinner solution and a great way to use odds and ends from my fridge. The nutmeg is necessary - don't skiip!

I didn't care for this.

Quick and easy recipe. Nice cheesy flavor great recipe for the not too experience cook.

I enjoy most soups, I don't know if it was the cream cheese or what but it had an awful gritty, almost curdled texture. I was not satisfied at all.

The name "creamy broccoli soup" is what this is, not a broccoli cheddar soup which has a bold taste. The philadelphia cream cheese plus milk just ends up a flavorless cream that is only mildly ...

This is a great dish. I added sausage to it and it was great.

It is a quick simple recipe, and the taste is ok, probably should use less broccoli then recommended. The cream cheese does not meal and make it a creamy soup, it is actually VERY VERY gritty!

This recipe was terrible. I added extra cheese and it still tastes like watered down broccoli.
