The other day I was clearing out the crisper drawer where I had somehow managed to accumulate quite a few baby carrots. I decided to make a pan of roasted carrots to go with our supper that night since the oven was on while I baked bread. Boy were they good.
Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly coat a 9" X 13" baking pan with pan spray.
Rinse one pound of baby carrots and pat dry. Lay carrots in a single layer in the baking dish. Salt and pepper the carrots. Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and toss the carrots with 2 Tbs. butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley and toss again. Return to oven to bake an additional 15 minutes or until carrots are fork tender.
A friend gave these her seal of approval saying they were delicious and she loved that I hadn't over seasoned them so she could really taste the carrots. I appreciated that. Simple always seems to work.
