This recipe is a "lifesaver" when you need a meal in a hurry, which I discovered when our two boys were young and I was working outside the home. It also reheats well.—Judy Wiles, Burlington, North Carolina

"Very good, protein packed meal! I also added in about a half cup of garden pasta sauce for flavor, and did away with the salt."

"We used cous cous instead of the beef because that's what we had in our pantry then added celery and garlic. Pretty good."
