Broccoli Cheese Soup

2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tbsp flour
2 1/2 cups milk
3/4 pound of processed cheese cubed (I use Velveeta)
1 package frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained. (I like the kind that is mostly tops)
Pepper to taste

Melt butter in saucepan on medium heat. Add onion. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes or until the onion becomes transparent. Add flour. Cook for one minute *stirring constantly* or until bubbly. Stir in milk. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. Simmer for a minute. Add broccoli and cheese *stir occasionally* and cook until cheese is melted.

Serve with warm Olive bread, Italian bread, or Sourdough.
