I love this recipe because it's easy to whip up in a hurry and makes good use out of our leftover couscous and shredded cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until the top of the casserole is golden brown, and the cheese is melted. Stir in butter to taste.

I thought this was excellent. All the other reviewers said that it could use a boost in flavor so I looked through my kitchen and found some ingredients to spice it up. Prepared the cauliflower and couscous as directed. I sauted garlic black pepper and chicken in margarine for about 2-4 minutes. Then I chopped some green onions and stirred this all together in an 8x8 pan. I added salt and more fresh ground black pepper before mixing in both mozzarella and cheddar. Probably about 2 cups? It was excellent. I would have liked plain I am sure but my bf is not a big couscous fan. Really great with leftovers or as a side to a flavorful dish. Read More

Pretty bland but great room for potential. Probably would do a broccoli/cauliflower mix and throw in some other veggies too for a more flavorful/aesthetically pleasing dish. Read More

this was not bad but i would say that i'll use it as a base in the future using perhaps a mixture of veggies and maybe a few more spices. Read More

This was pretty good. I used broccoli instead of cauliflower. I just cooked the couscous and broccoli together on the stovetop with a few cloves of garlic and salt and pepper and then added the cheddar cheese. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly (have made a similar recipe before) butthis was just so bland even with adding extra pepper jack cheese. Its a quick and easy side dish but needs something to kick it up quite a bit Read More

This was a great recipe I made this to go with a Steak Marsala that I made in my slow cooker. Instead of cauliflower I used broccoli! Very good and could go with any steak or chicken dish. Read More

We made this to go along with dinner tonight. We didn't realize you had to cook the couscous first so that created a big delay. The dish turned out just okay. The taste was boring and bland. I would suggest adding some other spice to it. I don't think I will make it again. Read More
