“My girlfriend brought this dish over as part of our progressive dinner. It was gorgeous & very tasty! If you cannot find carrots with leafy tops, small slender carrots without the tops will work nicely as well. From: Better Homes & Gardens, November 2004.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs carrots, small, whole with tops
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary, 4 6-inch sprigs
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
