Rosemary Carrots | Recipe | St. Patrick's Day Dinner

This recipe is so simple.  It's a tad time consuming, but most of the cook time is hands-off.  I prefer using regular carrots and slicing them into 1/8" rounds; a food processor feed tube is excellent for this.  It eliminates the need to boil the carrots first and the carrots will caramelize nicely.

For company, the baby carrots are easier to handle and look prettier.
