Roasted Carrots

This is one of the easiest side dishes possible.  Roasted carrots are full of vitamins and are a very popular alternative to potatoes!  Makes one hearty serving.

3 whole carrots peeled and cut on a bias (this sounds like a lot but these really cook down!)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste

Preheat oven to 425F
Toss carrots with olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes

Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes
Flip carrots over and turn off heat but allow them to sit in the oven for another 5 minutes

Serve alongside just about anything.  I served them with the Chicken with Mushroom Sauce recipe and they were the perfect light accompaniment!
