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
