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.

Ok...this recipe should have been reviewed 100 times by now! EXCELLENT! Look at the fat count everyone...now make this! It is the lowest fat, most flavorful side dish I've had in a LONG time! Easy too! I used roasted garlic diced tomatoes, added a smidge more than 2/3 cup of couscous, used dried parsley and used Garli Garni (my favorite spice!) in place of garlic powder. I combined the tomatoes, scallions, cayenne, garlic powder and water about an hour before dinner was ready to save time. Followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. SUPER! Will make this one again and again! Thank you!
