Review This Recipe
This is undoubtedly the easiest, most sophisticated meal I have ever prepared. I used a pine nut and couscous blend for the couscous, and made the vegetable bouillon into a sauce, since it wouldn't crush, but otherwise cooked the recipe as it read. I got such rave reviews from the family that I'll probably make this again soon.
