    Lorianne1's Note:

    A quick and easy Vegetarian dish. Many times when I make this, I use a jar of spaghetti sauce rather than making my own sauce--makes it quicker and easier. You can also change the veggies you add to the sauce.

      This was pretty good. I used a jar of Paul Newman's sockarooni sauce and added a can of diced tomatoes with italian seasonings. I just realized I forgot to add the parmesan, but we still liked the flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

      We normally have couscous with moroccan flavors, so this was something a bit different for us. I've learned recently that i don't like olives, so i left them out & added chili,lots of sliced mushrooms & next time i'll add green beans and/or broccoli. Used 1 & 1/2 cups of couscous to the same amount of boiling water.

      This is really yummy, and simple to make!:) I just cooked up the couscous and combined the whole thing, and sprinkled a little bit of feta cheese rather than parmesean. I also added a pinch or two of crushed red pepper flakes, because I wanted a little to give it a little kick. I think the kalamata olives really make the dish--great flavor, and the feta paired nicely with them. I could see serving it over pasta or rice as well. Also, I thought next time I might try adding chicken or fish as a non-vegetarian option. Either way, it is awesome--a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing! :)
