Simple ingredients, quick to prepare, and was delicious. Everyone in the house loved it. I made a few tweaks because I eat low carb. I replaced the half and half with a full cup of heavy cream, and replaced the carrots with chopped cauliflower. By doing these things it was thick enough I didn't need to add the flour. No half and half, no flour, and no carrots reduces the carbs to about 5g per serving.
