Will definitely make this again. But, didn't use the sage; we don't like sage. It was delicious!

This is a very good recipe. It helps to read all the words in a recipe. 2 carrots are plenty for what they are used for.

I will definitely not make this again. No one liked it and it probably was the sage in combination with the other ingredients.

Very good...but I recommend more carrots. 2 medium carrots will not feed 16 people.
