Cheesy Carrot Casserole

 Cheesy Carrot Casserole
SINCE all our children are grown, I like to make simple dishes for my husband and me. I usually have cheese, carrots and rice on hand, so this is a very handy side dish to whip up at any time. The cashews add crunch and great flavor. -Diane Hixon, Niceville, Florida
