      Fabulous! Left the beans out but served them beside the couscous so the adults could "mix and mingle" them together on their plates. Even my picky 4 and 7 year old sons loved this dish. Will definitely make again. Thanks for posting!

      This is not my favorite way to eat couscous. Although I love all of the ingredients, the combination lacked something for me. It wasn't bad, it's just not something I'd likely make again.

      I loved this recipe. I just tweaked it a bit with adding some garlic, yellow onions, kosher salt & pepper. Also, in the picture I'm gonna try to upload, I hadn't put any cheese on it yet.
