Pretty good and very easy. I used whole wheat couscous, and didn't have sundried tomatoes (although i'm sure they would be awesome in this recipe). I just used some fresh tomato, and then added oregano and basil, along with a little EVOO. Will definitely be making this fast dish again.

I used diced tomatoes instead of sun-dried and added some chicken to it to make it a whole one dish meal. I also added chopped up artichoke hearts, onions, and sweet peppers. Great and even better the next day cold. Thanks for sharing.

I chopped an equivalent amount of peppercinis instead of bell pepper(food allergy), very good and a little spicy.
