This recipe makes about 6 servings.

This recipe takes about 30 minutes to make.


  • 2 pounds carrots, washed, scrubbed, diagonally cut into about 3-inch pieces
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley



  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Grease a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with foil and set aside.
  • Place prepared carrots in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave. Once melted, add minced garlic, Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper to the melted butter and whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour the butter mixture over the carrots and toss to coat. Add in the grated parmesan cheese and mix until combined.
  • Transfer carrots to the baking sheet and arrange them in a single layer.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Mix them around halfway through cooking.
  • Remove from oven. Taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly.
  • Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve



  • Cut Evenly: Try to cut the carrots into uniform sizes so they cook evenly.
  • Coat Well: Generously coat the carrots with garlic, butter, and parmesan for full flavor.
  • Space Out: Arrange the carrots in a single layer, allowing space on the baking sheet to avoid steaming.
  • Watch Time: Monitor roasting to avoid overcooking; times may vary.
  • Season to Taste: Adjust seasonings as needed, or add herbs and spices that you like.
  • Use Fresh Ingredients: Opt for fresh garlic and freshly grated parmesan.
  • Reheat Properly: Use the oven or stove to reheat so as to maintain texture and flavor.
  • Prepare Carrots Ahead Of Time: Roast the carrots in the oven a day before you need them, then store them in an airtight container in the fridge. When you’re ready to serve them, spread the carrots out on a rimmed baking sheet and reheat them in a 425°F oven for 5 minutes.
  • Storing Leftovers: You can keep any leftover carrots in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
