Meatballs with Apricot Couscous

Real Simple magazine had a little article last year with different recipes using meatballs. This is the first one I have tried, and it was good! I used Morningstar Farms “meatballs” (only because I can’t find any other brand), and they worked just fine. My kids have never had couscous, so I thought they would love it, but nope, they didn’t. Toby didn’t think he would like this, but he said with each bite, it got better and better. This took no time at all to pull together
