    Under the authors picture is a photo of the couscous recipe. I believe I see some Orzo or rice mixed in with the couscous? I am going to make it tonight.

    *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #60* This was REALLY good ! I always use Israeli couscous -- pearl type - and chicken broth. Served with Barramundi fish fillets (yum -- had fresh when we visited Australia) - and you never notice a chicken taste. Went together in quick time, and looked very appealing with the red pepper. Thanks for posting, Boomette.

    What an enjoyable side! This side is not only fast and easy but also pairs well with many main dishes. Made as written. Thanks for the post.

    I made this after looking at many different recipes. I used orange peppers because that's what I had. My husband loved it and told me I needed to fix it again. I will because I liked it too.

    Tasty and easy side! I used a larger grained couscous than the normal variety, otherwise, no changes. made for ZWT9 Soup-a-Stars

    Excellent side dish, fast to put together and goes well with most any entree. The red pepper gives it nice color. Thanks for posting.
