Kid Friendly Eating - Mac 'n' Cheese Soup

Blessed with Grace
I love broccoli and cheese soup, so this cheesey soup is one of my favorites. My ultimate comfort food -great fall food - and best of all my kids love it! Super fast and easy, too!
Mac and Cheese Soup
1 pkg (14 oz) deluxe mac and cheese dinner mix
9 cups water
1 cup broccoli florets
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
2 1/2 cups milk
1 cup chopped fully cooked ham

Set aside cheese sauce packet from mac and cheese mix. In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to a boil. Add macaroni; cook for 8 -10 min. or until tender.
Meanwhile, in another saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add broccoli and onion; cook for 3 minutes. Stir in soup, milk, ham and contents of cheese sauce packet; heat through. Drain macaroni and broccoli; stir into soup.
