Roasted Parmesan Carrots

Mom always said “eat your carrots, help your eyes.” Rich in beta carotene, carrots not only support health but also taste amazing when roasted and tossed with Parmesan. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    The scent of thyme while these were roasting was amazing! We enjoyed these as an alternative to all the recipes for sweet carrot side dishes. The roasting time is perfect for tender-crisp carrots and the parmesan adds a wonderful tang to the veggies.

    I made this dish for Thanksgiving. The only change I made was using fresh rosemary sprigs instead of thyme. I didn't have any thyme and I grow rosemary. This dish was easy to prepare, beautiful to look at and very tasty.

    Easy to make, absolutely delicious. I used Grana Padano cheese and baby carrots, halved.

    My changes were: 2 to 3 Tbsp. olive oil and 1 Tbsp. chopped onion. This dish was delicious! I'm glad that I tried these carrots!
