This recipes takes bland couscous and combines it with flavours of the Mediterranean. Couscous, garlic, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, basil and balsamic vinegar are baked together, then liberally spinkled with grated Parmesan. It's a great side dish with chicken.
Never thought I'd like couscous but this was absolutely delicious. So easy to make and so flavoursome. Thank you - 31 Jan 2016
Great recipe! I made this easy on myself and just used a box of couscous and followed the directions on the back. I then tossed in the garlic, red bell pepper, green onion and cherry tomato. I cut the amount of basil in half. I added a bit more balsamic and added 2 Tbsp. of grated Parmesan right to the mixture. I baked it at 350 for 20 minutes and then topped with some shredded Parmesan cheese. Overall, very good. - 28 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
As others suggested, I used chicken broth instead of water. I also quatered my cherry tomatoes, and had to substitute regular onion instead of green onions, and added more parmesian cheese than called for. Overall, a great recipe, and my entire family loved it! - 19 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
