Low Carb Garlic Parmesan Carrots

This is another easy weeknight recipe. This is perfect when you are using your oven for something else. I like to serve these when I have either a casserole on the menu or an oven baked meat. I am not much of a carrot fan but these are really good and so easy. If you are worried about the carbs in carrots, I ran the numbers. A medium whole carrot has 6 grams of carbs and 1.7 grams of fiber, so 4.3 net carbs. This will fit easily into a meal that is low in carbs. Perfect with baked chicken thighs and a green leafy salad.

Ingredients
1 16 oz Bag of Baby Carrots
1 T Minced Garlic
1 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
1/2 t Italian Seasoning
1/3 Cup plus 3 T Parmesan Cheese, divided
Olive Oil

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Dump package of carrots onto baking sheet. If you have a few large ones, cut them in half. Drizzle about 1/2 tablespoon or so of olive oil. Toss to coat the carrots.
3. Sprinkle on all of the seasonings, reserving the 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese. Toss to coat.
4. Bake for 20 minutes. Removed from oven and stir the carrots around. Add remaining cheese and put back in the oven. Bake until the carrots are soft, around 15 or so more minutes.
