Pretty good. I was wary of this because you don't cook the sauce or melt the cheese before putting it in the oven but it came out surprisingly smooth and creamy. I didn't have the exact cheese called for, but I used some American, some cheddar, and bits of Muenster and Havarti. Total cheese used was just under 8 ounces by weight. Mine was bubbling after only 20 minutes in the oven so I turned down the heat. 45 minutes would have been nice for softening the veggies but I was afraid of overcooking the sauce so I took it out after only 30. I don't mind the texture of carrots and onions so I liked it, but if it's a concern for you, you should grate the carrot pretty finely. Anyway this was tasty and a nice change. I'll probably make it again.
