This recipe is kind of different. It's the only one I've ever seen with couscous stuffing before, but it's absolutely wonderful. I got it from a healthy cooking cook book I received as a gift back in the mid nineties. If you've heard of the recipe and the book, let me know in the messages or comments so that I can purchase a new one since I lost the book years ago, but it had some seriously great recipes in it!
