If you can boil water then you can make this! A great way to liven up plain couscous especially if you love roasted red peppers as much as i do. You may have to go to a specialty grocery to find the nicoise olives (i havent looked for them in a regular grocery- they may have them im not sure) Anyway good luck and happy cooking.

I love this recipe for a number of reasons - it's fast, easy, yummy, and freezes ok if you leave the zucchini out or replace it with something else. I don't like olives either so I leave those out and it's still great. I also don't usually need to add the whole jar of red peppers.
