I haven't made this recipe yet but it came to me from a dear friend (thank you Nanci) who found it on the web and made it for a dinner got rave reviews from everyone. The Zaar computer (for whatever reason) did not accept the '2 cups couscous' so I had to type it in as shown. Hopefully the powers that be will be able to fix it.
