Herb Roasted Carrots
From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a great recipe to have when you need a vegetable for a buffet or antipasto tray. The carrots can, of course, be served hot but they are just as delicious when served at room temperature. These are a great make ahead. They pack a huge flavor punch and they are very easy to do.
