"Good, but I've had better carrot-only versions. I like broccoli, but I suspect the combination wasn't as appealing."

"This is SO scrumptious. I eat leftovers by themselves. This is a GREAT potluck dish for dinner parties. I like to make a fresh sharp cheddar cheese sauce (with milk, flour, butter and cheddar cheese) and use it instead of the Velveeta and butter sauce."
