Easy and delicious side dish for any meal. Roasting brings out the sweetness of the carrots and parsnips. Delish!!
Roasted carrots and parsnips are an easy and tasty side dish. You can add various seasonings, but I like them best with just a little bit of salt and pepper. This is a great side dish with any meat dish, chicken, beef, pork and even with fish.
