Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

Couscous makes such a very good accompaniment to a meal that I have been collecting recipes of many variations. This one comes from Food Network's Robert Irvine's new book. Couscous is easy to make; just let it stand in hot water. Cooking time is actually standing time. I have not yet tried this recipe but am posting the recipe here for safekeeping.
