If you have a bounty of fresh carrots and are sick of feeling like a rabbit from eating so many, these Italian Parmesan Roasted Carrots are for you. I’m always trying to come up with new, healthier ways to eat vegetables that my husband will eat too. It’s not always an easy task. Feeding him is as hard as feeding a toddler sometimes. I made these carrots while he was gone, as a test of sorts, and really loved them. I think he will love them too. The sweet of the carrot goes well with the spice of the garlic.
Now, if you look at my site, Fearlessly Creative Mammas, you can tell that I seriously love cheese. Not all cheese, for example blue cheese will not touch my lips, but most cheeses are my friend. Parmesan is one of my favorites for sure. I decided these carrots needed some Parmesan. Good decision. It brings a nice blend of flavors.
True store here. My husband asked me once, while standing in front of the open refrigerator, if we had any cheese. I couldn’t believe he was asking. I got up and started pulling cheese out for him, then I took a picture because I couldn’t believe he asked the question.
Do you think we had any cheese? Really, it’s like asking me if we have chocolate.

These Italian Parmesan Roasted Carrots are really great and I suggest that if you grow a garden, planting a lot of carrots so you can have them often. A tip here is that if you are buying your carrots in the grocery store, buy the organic variety. Since they don’t have whatever it is that makes regular carrots huge, their size is more uniform from top to bottom. Not only that, but I personally think they are sweeter. Personal preference, I like them better. Stop over and visit me at Fearlessly Creative Mammas. I’d love to “see” you there.
