    Woo!! Big Hit!! I added 1 red Bell pepper, a can of corn, 1/4 cup of pignoli nuts, 1 tsp cunin and 1/2 tsp curry to the recipe and DH LOVED IT!! So did I, but I tried to stay low key and soak up the kudos. :) I'm making this again, no question! - 1/28/11

    I made this using Near East's Toasted Pinenut couscous and I found it really brought out the flavor of the cumin and curry that I used. I don't know what it does to the nutrition info, but it tasted great! - 7/19/07

    In my opinion it needs a little more liquid but it's quite good and very adaptable! I've used shallots and celery instead of onions; mushroom-flavored couscous mix (plain is better). Using a rotisserie chicken from the grocery makes it extra fast and easy. - 3/17/10

    Glad to have found this recipe. Add Fennel seed and saffron and you have Couscous Paella.

    Substitute the chicken with scallops and shrimp for Seafood Couscous Paella. - 6/1/09

    made this last night - husband really liked it. We are looking for alternatives to rice & pasta and this hit the mark, plus so easy since it's a one-pan meal. I especially like the red pepper! Made a salad to go with it. Great! - 1/21/09

    This was pretty good, but it had a REALLY strong tomato flavor. Next time, I might cut down the tomatoes or add a different vegetable to it. - 1/16/08

    This is a family favorite with us -- we have it all the time and we love it! It's so easy and quick, and can usually be made with what we have on hand (no extra trips to the store!). Yummy! - 5/25/07

  • As is, it just tasted like the canned tomatoes. I used fresh tomatoes and added an extra 1/4 cup of broth. This time it was really good, thanks for the recipe! - 11/11/12

  • Loved it! I went a bit overboard with the red pepper flakes but it is still great. Even my husband who claims he does not eat couscous (doesn't like the texture) ate it. and it is so easy to make! I used broccoli. Next time I'll also add chopped bell pepper for more veggies. - 10/25/12
