The state of Wisconsin is nicknamed “America’s dairy land” for good reason. It offers a wealth of incredible cheeses and other dairy products—as well as signature dishes made with them. Here, we’re serving up a Wisconsin-style potato and cheese soup, made with sharp cheddar. The flavorful, rich broth is brimming with leek, sugar snap peas and creamy Yukon Gold potatoes. And for an extra kick, we’re finishing the soup with a sprinkling of chives.

Wisconsin-Style Potato & Cheddar Soup with Roasted Zucchini & Cherry Tomatoes ingredients
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Trim off and discard the stem ends of the zucchinis; slice the zucchinis into 1-inch-thick rounds on an angle. Peel and medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard the root ends and upper, dark-green leaves of the leek. Halve the leek lengthwise; thoroughly rinse between the layers with cold water. Small dice the leek. Grate the cheese. Cut the sugar snap peas into ½-inch pieces. Cut the chives into ½-inch pieces. Pick the basil off the stems; discard the stems.
