    Analisa's Note:

    Before I moved to San Antonio, I used to buy this fabulous "Lucky Seven Vegetable Couscous", but can't find it here. Desperate for the flavor, I tried without success to find the recipe on the web. After some browsing, I took some of the listed ingredients from various recipes I found & came up with this. My family LOVED it! You could add some cooked cubed chicken to this to make a one-dish meal. You can also add more vegetables such as sweet red peppers or squash, and use vegetable broth instead of chicken for a vegetarian dish.

      First-rate couscous recipe! It was so easy to make, and all the ingredients worked really well together. I think the white wine and cranberries really add a lot to the flavor. Thanks for sharing this; I'm sure I'll be making it again soon.
