Scalloped Carrots Casserole Recipe
A cookbook my husband gave me as a wedding gift included this recipe-he remembers having the dish as a child at church dinners. Now I make it whenever I need a special vegetable side. It's rich and cheesy even after reheating.

- 12 medium carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick (about 4 cups)

- 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
