    This was SO delicious; the only thing it needs is some moisture. I'm playing with variations of olive oil, spread, and some healthy sauces. I served it with a little lean pork. My hubby and I are going to make it for our 5th wedding anniversary garden party. It is easy, fast, and inexpensive. - 3/1/09

    I made this exactly according to the recipe except I chose Whole Wheat Couscous. Very Good. Couscous can be dry and kinda boring, but not this. Very tasty. Will make again for sure. - 2/27/09

    Made it using whole wheat organic couscous-family loved it. They prefer this over brown rice. Expected it to be spicy with the crushed red pepper but wasn't. Excellent! - 2/1/08
