  3. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Wait 30 seconds before stirring into carrots. Cook and stir for 2 more minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Chopped onions may also be added at the time you first put the carrots into the pan of melted butter/ margarine.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
