Apple-a-Day Casserole Recipe
This sweet-tart casserole is a fun change of pace from traditional vegetable side dishes. It's super-quick to prepare if you use a food processor to slice the apples and carrots. The unique combination complements chicken, fish and pork. -Elizabeth Erwin, Syracuse, New York
