Oh My Stars, I wish I had more than 5 stars to give. This has amazing flavor that really makes you want to keep eating. I needed to cook it almost 45 mins longer than stated BUT I set the oven @ 350F because it runs on the hot side and I didn't want dinner to scorch or dry out. The seasoning is lovely, it's mild and I would even say delicate and the onions caramelize to a wonderful mellow sweetness. I used whole wheat couscous cooked in chicken stock. I made the whole recipe just for ME and I'm so glad that I did, I have leftovers to enjoy 3 more times! :D. Made for Photo Tag.
