NOTES : Member's Notes: Here's a good winter recipe. Perfect for freezing.
I am going to add 1 16 ounce can of chick peas for fiber (425 Calories, 9g Fat, 11g Fibre, only 18%% fat) WW Points = 7 (Helen D.)
My husband says if you are going to serve over couscous, that you do not need potatoes, sounds reasonable to me, I am going to save this and make it this winter when it is cold. Helen D.
