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

    Really good with bits of cubed chicken breast or cold left over chicken from the day before.
