Got this recipe from a friend at work. Loved it. Great when you want something a little different. Thumbs up.

Very easy and really tasty. I thought I had more couscous in the house than I did, so I ended up only using half as much. That seemed to be fine, though. Also, I used less raisins since I was using less couscous, but it would have been good with the full amount. I will definitely make this again!
