      SO FLAVORFUL. I was pleasantly surprised at how much flavor this little dish contained. My husband, who doesn't like anything I make had 4 bowls of it and told me 2 times that he liked it. I didn't have pine nuts and I added marinated artichokes. It was delish! I am going to make it as a side dish to garlic chicken fingers (Garlic Chicken Breasts) next time. Thanks for sharing.

      I served this as a meatless dinner with a salad and some garlic bread. I loved it! Next time I might add some buillion to the couscous water and reduce the oil. The fresh basil is a must! Thanks for posting.

      Very tasty indeed! Only change I made was to cut back on the amount of olive oil - I used just a couple of table spoons and don't feel that this compromised the dish at all. Thank you.
