    Very Good
    This sounds wonderful. Our family loves couscous and this is a great alternative to rice. Two questions though. Shouldn't there be some kind of liquid like broth added and why is garlic mentioned twice? I would assume then that the 1/4 cup of chopped garlic should have been onion instead? - 5/26/09

    This was delicious!I added a full 8oz pack of baby bella mushrooms, one zucchinni, and one summer squash sliced very thin.I also used tri-color couscous.I'm assuming the first garlic in the ingredients is "powder"? or "salt"? I will not add cayenne pepper next time. What size were the shrimp to be? - 3/12/09

    Very good. Nice and spicy (the way I like it). Filling but light weight (nice alternative to pasta) and low fat which is great since I'm trying to slim down. - 5/3/08

    Very light and filling - the sauce gives it a great taste. Will try this one again. The couscous is a nice alternative to a heavier pasta dish - just right!!! - 4/16/08
