Outstanding! Easy to make, quick, and healthy - you can't beat that! I used fresh chopped parsley instead of the cilantro. This made 2 generous servings and we loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by mersaydees

This is my kind of dish. Love couscous -- love veggies! This is fast and tasty. Thanks, WiGal, for a new favorite. Made for Make My Recipe Reunion tag game.

I made as directing just omitting the hot pepper sauce and this was the first time we have had couscous but it certainly won't be the last. I served it with The Flying Chef recipe recipe #351666. Thank you WiGal for a great simple and easy to make and tasty recipe.
