A simple, easy side dish. Perfect with fish or chicken. Cooks super fast.... note: After reading that this was coming out dry, I remade it to see what was wrong. I think it should be solved by increasing the broth to 1 and a half cups or even just 1 and one fourth. You can also add a little more broth after you remove it from heat and adjust to your taste.

This was pretty good. I used 1 can (1 1/2 C)of Swanson broth to 1 C of couscous and it was a bit wet. I added sauteed mushrooms but forgot to add onions to make a pilaf with this recipe. I found the whole thing a bit bland, but that could be from using Kraft parmesan rather than fresh.
