This is also good if you roast your baby carrots. Just toss with a little melted butter or EVOO, bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, then toss with grated parmesan. It's one of our favorite side dishes.
Okay, nothing special.
I loved this recipe, but did it baked/roasted. I just cut baby carrots in half (or bigger carrots into little pieces) and put them in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 1/4 parmesan cheese. After mixing it together, I put them in the toaster oven for 20 min and they were delicious! Yum!
VERY good! While the title "implies" baby carrots are the star ingreident, I don't see the point, considering the recipe submitter's instructions are to chop them.... As Sara Jo did, I also roasted my carrots - and prep couldn't have been easier! I only had one hiccup (completely my fault since I didn't follow becky's instructions). It took FAR longer than 25 minutes / 350 degrees for my carrots to cook thru. I'm not sure if Sara based her roasting timeframe on using whole or chopped carrots (which obviously makes a difference - I roasted whole baby carrots), so I'll just consider it a "loose" guideline. :) My carrots took nearly 45 minutes to cook, but it was WELL worth the wait! Roasting is just plain AWESOME - it brings out the natural sweetness that you lose with other cooking methods, IMHO. NOTE: I sprinkled my carrots with cheese AFTER they were out of the oven, but wish I would have tossed them with it (and the EVOO I coated them in) beforehand. What didn't adhere to my carrots ended up as clumps of partially melted cheese, but was delicious nonetheless. :) Served alongside chicken Parmesan, a PERFECT pairing! Thanks for sharing, becky! I now have a new way to enjoy one of my favorite vegetables! :-)
Simple and delicious is right! I used full size carrots and it still worked great.
Who knew something with this few ingredients could be so yummy! I used salted butter and steamed these until tender but still stiff, then transferred them to a foil pouch and finished cooking them on the grill, adding the parmesan the last five minutes. Amazing, thanks for the recipe, it will be used often:)
Delicious.. I added chopped parsley and s&p
Very good-quick and easy. The parmesan crust was a nice savory contrast to the sweet carrots.
