Posted for ZWT - NA*ME. ETA : I made it on July 26, 2011. I used chicken broth and used only red bell pepper. We loved it.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #60* This was REALLY good ! I always use Israeli couscous -- pearl type - and chicken broth. Served with Barramundi fish fillets (yum -- had fresh when we visited Australia) - and you never notice a chicken taste. Went together in quick time, and looked very appealing with the red pepper. Thanks for posting, Boomette.
