    I thought this side dish was tasty, however my husband didn't care for the couscous. I forwarded the recipe to a friend whom I think will enjoy it also. Thanks!

    Made this as a side dish to some catfish I had in the freezer. I sauteed the veggies in EVOO first, then added the seasonings, tomatoes, and chicken broth. let that sit for a while before adding the couscous as the fish wasn't quite ready. We all enjoyed this "different" side dish. A definite keeper and will make again.

    Made this recipe last night for a potluck dinner. Wonderful flavors. Am hoping there will be leftovers to take home! Didn't have kidney beans so made it with black beans. A definite do again!

    My biggest regret with this recipe is not finding it before the holidays. With its bright reds and greens, it would have been the perfect side at a Christmas potluck. Seriously, this is one of those sinfully simple dishes that ends with a great dish. Eating my second helping as I type and can tell it'll be great leftovers. My suggestion is that you let it sit a minute or two after mixing so that the heat of the couscous releases the flavors of the green add-ins and garlic. By the way those pepper flakes pack a stealth punch, so reduce it if you don't like spicy. Thanks Nurse Di.

    This was really good. I made it like the recipe said and it was really good, though I used Pinto Beans instead of red beans and chives instead of scallions. I would suggest a little less salt next time though.
