This was very simple to make, and yes the recipe is high in fat and calories but in case you missed the title of the recipe it has cheese in it which will contribute to the higher fat and calorie content.

Healthy? Hardly! But healthier. I love the idea of sneaking in carrots into this comfort dish. Heavy cream makes for a great dish but 1% does fine too. I often add cooked veggies. Steamed broccoli is my favorite but for folks whose kids don't "do" veggies it is a good idea.
