My mom and I developed this recipe to see if there was a carrot dish that even people who don't care for carrots would enjoy. So far, I haven't met anyone who hasn't liked our casserole—especially when the carrots are freshly dug from the garden! —Laurie Heward, Fillmore, Utah

"made this recipe, adding zucchini, for a potluck and sure enough it was a hit! Also, as topping used tater tots and cheese. On other casseroles I may uses leftover potato or corn chips from the bottom of the bags. (hate to throw anything away) Really like the simple sauce. Plan to make this recipe for an upcoming party."
