This has always been a big hit with the kids in my family, when I was a kid myself, and as a mother now.

This is a very interesting dish! There is a good balance between rice, carrots, and cheese (no one ingredient dominates) creating a light flavorful dish. I think I might add an extra tablespoon of minced onion next time as I couldn't detect the onion in this dish. The color of the finished dish is really beautiful with the orange flecks throught the rice (more orange than golden in color). Note that this is not an overly cheesy dish as there is a nice balance with all the ingredients - not like cheesy in macaroni and cheese. Definitely not a dish for those that are not fond of carrots!
