This was very good, quick and very tasty, I loved the aroma of the sauce as it cooked. Only thing Linky, next time I will make the couscous seperately, I didnt feel it added to the presentation of the dish to be all mixed together. I cannot fault this recipe, but I ould have preferred the luscious sauce to be nestled in a bed of couscous! totally yum, though, absolutely loved the butternut used this way.
