Made with quinoa instead of couscous and a red onion instead of shallots. Wish there was an easier way to figure the change in nutritional info. The spinach didn't steam as much as thought it would but was filling and good. Submitted by:

I do something similar, but i sautee the veggies and add chopped up turkey or lean ham for protein. YUM. I also add a splash of white cooking wine to the veggies right before I add teh couscous and a little parm cheese on top. Submitted by:

I used quinoa. I used only .25 cup. Used Rice vinegar (0 calories). Used a yellow onion, cut up, roasted with the squash, grated parmesan instead of shredded, frozen spinach. used what was on hand. Then I added a baked chicken breast into the mix. DH and I loved it.
P.S. We ate some of peels.
