This is the perfect weeknite meal for me! I used high measurements of spices and served over couscous. Only 2 WW points per serving (not including couscous, which adds 4 points for 1/3 dry cup). Yummy, quick, healthy, and it doesn't blow my diet. Thank you so much--I'll be having this often!

only because I added sauteed onion too... served over rice. oh yeah, doubled, maybe tripled the spices too. Yum!

I sauteed 1/3 c. of chopped onion with 1/8 tsp. garlic powder before adding the other ingredients. I used one very large diced tomato instead of a can of tomatoes & I used only 1 tsp. of honey as I'm not a huge fan of it. This was so quick & easy to make & tasted great with the brown rice I made. Definitely a busy weeknight meal that will make a reappearance on my dinner table.
