I thought this was a pretty good recipe! A great way to use leftover couscous! I didn't use the mushrooms but instead I steamed some baby carrots and cut them up. Also I used mozzarella instead of swiss (because it's what I had). I found the nutmeg was a bit of an odd addition. Lastly I would suggest adding some more salt. With a few tweaks, this is a good recipe! I'll be making this again.
