Parmesan Roasted Carrots

Serves 8

Ingredients: 

  • 4-5 cups baby carrots
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves (2 teaspoons) minced garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons panko bread crumbs, optional
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, more to taste
  • Chopped parsley, optional

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Place the olive oil, garlic, Parmesan, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a large zip top bag. Add the carrots and shake until they are well coated. Then spread out onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until tender. Toss with a spatula half way through.

Remove from oven and serve immediately. Top with fresh parsley if desired.
