The sweet flavor of marsala goes surprisingly well with carrots in this Sicilian dish. Came from The Encyclopedia of Italian Dishes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan, and add the carrots.
  2. Stir well to cover with the butter.
  3. Add the sugar and salt, and mix well.
  4. Stir in the marsala, and simmer for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Pour enough water to barely cover the carrots.
  6. Cover the pan and cook over low to moderate heat until the carrots are tender.
  7. Remove the cover, and cook until the liquids reduce almost completely.
  8. Serve hot.

Good--and a good way to use up marsala. Thanks for the posting!

I am reviewing after making this recipe twice. Both times resulted in delicious success. The second time (tonight) I reduced the butter by half with no loss in taste. Thanks!

Very good I made it with baby carrots sliced in half length wise. I did not have time to reduce the liquid all the way, but they were fine. I like anything with wine even an empty glass....
