    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!

      Not a good combination, the couscous don't go well with the meatballs

      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! 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.
