      My husband and I absolutely loved this. It has a deep, rich flavor. And it tastes just as good the next day. I used beef broth instead of the water but otherwise followed the directions exactly. Excellent!

      This is an excellent way to liven up plain couscous. I used twice as much parmesan as the recipe required and I didn't chop my pinenuts and used more than required of those, too. For oil I did use one tablespoon olive oil and then just a quick extra dash of sesame oil. I think next time I will also increase the amount of oil as I felt the end result was dryer than I prefer my couscous to be. The flavour is subtle but satisfyingly different. I would definitely make again because this is a nice alternative to rice or any side starch. Thanks, Kat, for sharing!
