I usually serve these with chicken or pork chops. Make it a little saucier and you can dip the meat in it...yummy

I'm always looking for new carrot recipes and this one was tasty and a little different. I never would have thought to add crushed red pepper but it works. Sweet and spicy with lots of sauce. Used 1/2 cup brown sugar which was plenty, and butter. An added bonus, quick to fix on the stovetop. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
