    Delicious. Lots of flavour and very easily made. Use plenty of basil, more than it says. In fact use less couscous for the quantity of ingredients specified.  -  01 Aug 2016


    Really good and really easy. My husband has never been crazy about couscous, but he liked this a lot. So easy and so tasty, and it really is good hot or cold. I used white balsamic vinegar, and that flavor really pops, giving you just the right amount of tartness.  -  04 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy and delicious! Used diced italian canned tomatoes in oregano, basil, lots of fresh basil from the garden and added sautéed chicken. Will definitely make this again.  -  15 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
