This is a wonderful one-dish meal that presents itself beautifully. It is fairly simple, and guaranteed to knock the socks off of the garlic-lovers in your crowd!!! I have also substituted various other veggies for the carrots (such as brussels sprouts, broccoli, or zucchini) and I get rave reviews every time!! My fave is the brussels sprouts, I know I'm weird!! Well, either way, this dish is simple enough to serve as a weeknight family meal, yet elegant enough to serve to guests. I just love it!!! I usually serve this with steamed rice and a fresh green salad. YUMMY!!!!
