    MechanicalJen's Note:

    This recipe was my introduction to couscous, and I've never looked back. The first time I made it, I did accidentially use israeli couscous (don't try it!). The cinnamon is very subtle, and the meatballs are very complex in flavor. This is very healthy, and tastes sooo good!

      These were great, the only thing I did differently was add the spinach and onions to the meatballs and sauce instead of the couscous. I will definately make this again.

      Fabulous recipe!! The spices mixed with the turkey and then the flavor of the sauce after the meatballs are cooked...wow! I went for a walk after supper and when I came back in the house the smell of dinner was still intoxicatingly delicious! The couscous went perfect and I made a spinach salad to go with it.
