      This is wonderful! It makes a perfect stew for a cold and blustery night we are having. The flavors of this are nicely Moroccan, with just a little bit of heat. I know I would enjoy this if I added thinly sliced potatoes, and maybe adding some healthy veggies like carrot or spinach, and perhaps even some chickpeas. Very nice, and we all enjoyed! Thank you.

      A delicious dish! All of the flavors blend well. Served over white rice. Prepared as a participant in The Great Tagine Treasure Hunt February 2008.
