    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This is a terrific, simple and quick side dish. I've also used this recipe to spice up a box the "Near East" brand flavored couscous as well. Simply use the amount of water specified on the box, and add the extra ingredients. It will still be ready in 5 minutes

      This was fabulous, quick and so easy. This is definitely somethign I will make again. Honestly I have had a hard time (in the past) taking a liking for couscous, but in a dish like this, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There isnt a whole lot to it, but with the ingredients it contains, the flavors and textures make it delightful! THanks so much becky!

      This is a great recipe. I'm surprised I'm the first to rate it. I used the box of couscous mix and added the extra ingredients. It was very easy and so tasty. My whole family enjoyed it. Thanks for posting!

      This was a good way to "dress up" ordinary cous cous- and I suspect you could throw in some veggies of your choice to sneak in some vitamins too! I omitted the cayenne because I used canned tomatoes with chilies in them and found it had a good heat already. The olives were a good addition and I added capers (personal preference- love them!). VERY simple and very quick. Could be a filling main course if you added more veggies.
