  • Incredible!
    I didn't use whole wheat couscous (used regular) and I used low sodium chicken broth & no salt tomatoes, but it still was wonderful! Will definitely make again! - 9/9/12

  • Incredible!
    This was a great lunch recipe. I used basil in it also and instead of chicken broth just used water (mostly because I did not have chicken broth.) I will be using this more because it is simple and easy and makes such a great and filling lunch. - 8/11/11

    I actually added a little salt to it, but I didn't add it in the recipe since alot of people are more concerned with sodium. I probably should be, too. lol... but, I love my flavor! :) Thanks for rating!!
