I made a few modifications: used whole kernal corn drained because I didn't have any cream style on hand. Also used the Roasted Garlic and Olive oil couscous so I didn't add any additional salt. The family ate it up and asked for more so next time I'll double the recipe.

i love all of the ingredients separately it was fast and easy to make but i was not a fan of the texture--reminded me of elastic undercooked cream of wheat. it also doesn't look entirely appetizing. i can see why people might like it for comfort food if the texture doesn't bother them but i would not suggest using it for entertaining.

This side dish is awesome. I may have added a little more cheese you can never have too much cheese but other than that I followed the recipe exactly.

Followed directions but it tasted bland to us. Might make again but would add a lot more ingredients.

Superb! I have never had couscous before but saw this recipe and thought why not give it a try? I did and it is wonderful and oh so easy to make...so much so my non-cooking daughter now makes it as her specialty. When my finicky children eat something strange and then ask for more it has to be good. Give it a try. I don't think you or your family will be disappointed.

This really lives up to the name! The only thing I'm NOT crazy about is the instruction for cooking the couscous. I knew that it needed some more flavour - so I added 1/2 tsp dried thyme and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. I will definately use this recipe again but plan on adding some roasted red bell pepper for a pop of colour. I used a ring mold for the presentation. This is restaurant worthy w/ the right seasonings!

Originally when I read this recipe along with the reviews I was super excited to give it a try. All the ingredients in this recipe I love on their own. After following the recipe I was left with a gluey mass that ruined the light fluffy nature of the couscous. The flavors were bland and tasted like nothing more than a diluted version of cream corn. The color was yellow just yellow.... I will not make this again.

Like the other reviewer I didn't really like the consistancy. Very easy and fast but not very good flavor. Maybe the brand of cream corn I used affected the outcome.

I thought this was okay but the kids hated it.
