Couscous can be fairly bland so you have to jazz it up with intense flavours like garlic, basil and balsamic vinegar.
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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
