Honey Roasted Carrots

I found this simple, delicious, healthy recipe in my May Everyday Food Magazine. I loved them. Called my Mom immediately to tell her to make them!
Honey Roasted Carrots

1 bag of carrots - peeled, washed, cut in 2-inch pieces, halved lengthwise
olive oil
On a rimmed cookie sheet, place the prepared carrots. Sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Place in 450 oven for 17 minutes - stir carrots, flip them over. Put them back in the oven another 17-18 minutes or until soft.
As soon as they come out of the oven, drizzle with honey - not much (about a Tbsp) or they end up too sweet. The natural sugars from both the carrots and the honey are great - then the kosher salt plays off them well.
Enjoy this healthy side dish! :)
