Delicious. Unfortunately, I had to use ground beef in place of lamb but the result was still a great dinner. I made 2 servings and got 12 meat balls so I guess I made them a bit bigger (oh well, :D). The tomato sauce was yummy as well. I really loved the couscous and that, my friend, will be showing up again with with almost anything and, quite possibly alone for a lunch. Made for Baby Kato's win in the Sweet December Event 2013.
