    Barb Gertz's Note:

    Reto dishes-like stuffed peppers- might remind us of long hours in the Kitchen, But these can be on the table surprisingly fast.Over flowing with Lamb and couscous, they are light and satisfying at the same time. Recipe comes from Sunset Magazine

      I found this recipe outstanding, but since I am not a big fan of couscous, I made it with brown rice. Just cook the rice in the chicken stock and used the package directions. To Die For!!!
