I am always on the lookout for unique couscous recipes. It's so easy to make but DH thinks it's bland. I saw Giada make cakes one day with the couscous so that inspired me to create my own. This was a hit with my family. I served them with sauteed mushrooms with a garlic, wine sauce and Best Roasted Chicken You'll Ever Have!! for one of the most delicious meals. One note, I always prepare the couscous in chicken broth instead of water for extra flavor but it can also be done in vegetable broth. Add more cheese/herbs or a different variety according to your tastes. I think feta and oregano would be great.
