    Absolutely great recipe! So simple and tastes so good! I often change the type of cheese to what I have on hand and double the amount (you can never have too much cheese!). I've permanently exchanged the corn flakes (rarely have them on hand) with Panko bread crumbs. Going to make it tonight and try using canned carrots for the first time.

    Husband and I both loved this dish. When camping in the motorhome, I cook the carrots in a mircrwave cooking bag and heat the other ingredients in a throw away bowl in the microwave. This saves on alot of cleanup. Thanks for a great recipe.
