    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

    I used pork, added a touch of cumin and curry, but otherwise went by the recipe and IT WAS WONDERFUL! - 12/2/09
