    Oops sorry about that,i've missed out the carrots on the ingredients list.....yes.....carrots are used in the recipe....about 3-4 will do,they should be cut into small chunks!  -  20 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Not really a review but I don't know how else to ask a question about this recipe. Basically your instructions say to add carrot, however there are no carrots in the ingredients. So all I would like to know is, is there carrots in this recipe or not? Also is the sauce(with bacon)freezable?  -  19 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
