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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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

This was pretty good. It was my first time trying couscous so did not know what to expect. I think it was a lot like a spoonbread. Read More
