Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a large jellyroll pan with aluminum foil.
In a medium bowl, mix together the carrots, melted butter and salt. Spread out the carrots in a single layer on the jellyroll pan and roast until tender, stirring once, 25 to 30 minutes. Toss with the chopped herbs if using and serve.
