    *Parsley*'s Note:

    Great for a somewhat different carrot side dish. I love carrots and cheese together.

      I liked this a lot, but it was very rich. Maybe that was because I used white chedder Cheese Nips. I also thought the sauce overpowered the carrots, so next time I may cut the sauce in half. Also, although I like tarragon, it too overpowered the carrots. Perhaps, half of that would be better too. With these modifications, I will probably make this often.

      Had some fresh thyme that I used, only increased it to 1 tsp. I also used a combination of white and orange carrots which made this really eye appealing on the plate. I don't think I'd ever had cheese and carrots together before and really liked the flavor. This is a great casserole!

      I love it! I would not change a thing except maybe try to reduce the fat somehow. I've never used tarragon before- I like it! This recipe is set apart from other carrot casseroles because of the herbs in it. Delicious!
