These roasted carrots with candied pecans and goat cheese are sure to impress your guests! A simple side dish filled with delicious flavors. The carrots almost become candied themselves as they roast with brown sugar and cinnamon. The creamy, tangy goat cheese and crunchy sweet pecans pair perfectly together, making this a unique and delicious dish to share.
