I made this to accompany my Dukkah Chicken (#388664), but it would be good with a variety of mediterranean dishes.

Yummy, hearty veggie meal! Barely fit my sauce pan too! I do think it needed more salt for me and I think I will put some cheese in it tomorrow for lunch, but all in all I can see making this again. Thanks for the recipe.

Wow! This was really good. I used spinach cous cous, red onion, red and yellow peppers (what I had on hand) and added some salt. It was FANTASTIC! The recipe make ALOT... it filled my 12 inch skillet to the rim! I would say this recipe makes 8-10 servings. Thanks for posting!
