    I don't know what I did wrong, but these were a disappointment. No one would eat this and it all ended up in the trash (along with the recipe). Maybe it's because I don't usually cook with Velveeta - too much sodium and quite expensive.

    My daughter always asks for this as a side dish every Easter. I've made this for several years and it's the only way my daughter will eat carrots. She (and everyone else) loves them.

    I made this as a side dish during the Holidays and after reading the reviews, I used a little less than three pounds of carrots. Several of my guests asked for the recipe. It's easy and tasty!

    Great recipe! Beautiful with color, nice flavor, everyone enjoyed this. Only change I would make is to add a few more carrots.

    Very good recipe, it was the big hit at our dinner party. Next time I might use 2 1/2 lbs. of carrots, there's plenty of sauce.

    I will make these every chance I get. Even people who don't like carrots will love these. We were suppose to save them for the party we were having for the whole weekend. They were gone within one night of the three day party. People couldn't get enough of them. THEY WERE TO DIE FOR!!!
