From the Culinary Institute of America. I LOVE the bigger, thicker texture of israeli couscous. Sometimes it's hard to find in local stores, this would be good with regular couscous too.

Outstanding. I finally have a recipe for Israeli couscous that my whole family likes. Although I tweaked this recipe after the first try, just so that I could have my carbs and meat all in one for 'brown bag' lunches. I turned this into a 'not-so-kosher' Israeli couscous by adding dices honey-baked spiral ham. It's delicious.
