Trim tops from carrots. Scrub carrots and, if desired, peel. Rinse and dry well on paper towels. Cut any large carrots in half lengthwise.Advertisement
In a foil-lined 15x10x1-inch pan, toss the carrots with melted butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover carrots with a top layer of foil, rolling edges together to make a packet.
Roast in a 425° oven for 15 minutes. Remove top foil sheet. Roast, uncovered, about 15 minutes more or until carrots are crisp tender, stirring occasionally.
Serve warm, seasoned with additional salt and pepper.
