Delicious Saucy Carrots

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Hanka

This is a great side dish that my mom used to make all the time. Typical Czech cuisine. We serve it with pasta or potatoes and chicken breast. I make this quite often as my DH loves it. Sometimes I add baby pea for more color. It is easy put together and delicious inexpensive meal.
