Slow-Browned Carrots With Butter

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Debbwl

This comes from The complete Italian Vegetarian cookbook and is so easy. The slow cooking of the carrots makes them incredibly sweet. The book suggest greated Parmigian-Reggiano cheese as an optional addtion add to the top after cooking. We have not tried using the cheese as these are so good as is.

Normally in order to get my husband to eat carrots, I throw myself on the floor a la Liz Taylor in Taming of the Shrew. That really wasn't worth mentioning except for the fact that this is first time he ate them. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
