Baby carrots with a crunchy Parmesan crust

Top Review by Michelle_My_Belle

i found these to be a wonderful twist on a normally bland side dish. I followed the recipe as close as possible once i converted it over to us (17 2/3 oz carrots is hard to pinpoint lol) i served them on the side of Recipe #229845 and oddly enough the whole meal went very well together, id like to try this with canned carrots to make it a bit easier next time, i think it would work :D lol but overall a great pick and minus the chili flakes id say a good kid pleaser also
