Roasted Carrots With Dill

I made this recipe last night - it was a big hit! The dill reminds me of when we went to Ukraine and they would boil potatoes and top them with butter and dill - such a great herb and I'd never really eaten it before, but I'm glad that I did and it makes this recipe fabulous!

Roasted Carrots With Dill

INGREDIENTS:
8-10 large carrots (I put in the whole bag - it was more like 15)
Olive oil
1 tablespoon salted butter, cut into small pieces (optional)
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

HOW TO PREPARE:
In a roasting pan, toss carrots with enough olive oil to coat. Top with butter, kosher salt, and pepper. Roast in a 425° oven to desired tenderness, then turn the broiler to high and cook carrots until lightly browned. Sprinkle fresh dill over carrots.
