Delicious, quick weeknight meal. "Tiny balls of Israeli couscous are the culinary pearls of the pasta world". The combination of sweet, savory and piquant flavors in this dish make a nice match. Adapted from a recipe I saw in the Food Network Cooking Magazine. The original recipe called for chopped dates. I substitued dried cranberries instead, since that is what I had on hand. I also added some dried corriander along with the cinnamon, just to give a hint more flavor. I also like to soak the dried cranberries in a bit of hot water to plump them up before cooking. Splash of wine vinegar at the end gives a nice touch!
