Morocco meatball tajine with pasta


tajine2

If you have not eaten food from Morocco before, then now’s the time.  Moroccan cuisine is an exciting journey in the land of spices.  Please read a bit about Moroccan food in the states I have on this site. Here in Morocco, the food is spicy without being hot. Many spices but not so that someone takes over. Harissa is obviously a must. And Harissa can find recipes on this page, of course.
