These carrots are not your usual roasted carrots.
Inspired by a contorno I enjoyed at Pizzeria Delfina in Burlingame .
This dish is all about the carrots, so use the sweetest, freshest ones you can find. Save the greens for making the gremolata.
I have a physical dependency on Bellwether Farm's whole milk, basket-dipped ricotta
and highly recommend it here. Alternatively, you can make your own
Don't prepare the gremolata until you're about to serve the dish, as the mint will blacken.
I don't mind making a meal of this, a green salad, a hunk of bread, and a glass of wine, but you can also serve it as a first course or contorno, or to the side of grilled meat of some sort.
