Easy and quick to make! I lightly steamed the carrots then proceeded with the recipe. The orange zest was added after the carrots were transfered to a serving platter. The sauce was good on everything! Oooh, yum! Here's my menu so I don't forget for the next time: Recipe #14255, Recipe #329327, Recipe #75915. Reviewed for NA*ME Tag.
