This recipe has been used in my family for decades and has always been a family favorite. I don’t think we have ever had a Thanksgiving or Christmas without it. It is the perfect side dish and is beautiful in its simplicity.

 Leda’s Cooked Carrots


¼ cup Olive Oil

1 tablespoon Garlic minced

1 Onions Chopped

1.5 lbs Carrots thinly sliced

2 cups Leda’s Meat Sauce

Salt and Pepper to Taste


Heat the oil over medium heat in a large, wide nonstick skillet or saucepan. Add the garlic and onion slices and stir to coat the onions with the oil. Cook for 8 minutes stirring occasionally. Add sliced carrots, cover, and cook until thoroughly cooked which should take approximately 20 minutes. Then add Leda’s meat sauce and cook for another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
