Recipe by Tiffany Klabin Palisi
"This is my own creation. It is both tasty and healthy. It looks great on Christmas plates. The couscous is off-white, the peppers are green and red; the colors of Christmas. Taste and you'll know why it is my favorite recipe."

green bell pepper, diced
red bell pepper, chopped
grated Parmesan cheese
This was pretty good. I sauteed the bell peppers with minced garlic in the butter and then added equal parts of water and couscous along with the parmesan cheese. At the table we seasoned it with salt and pepper and it went great with our spinach stuffed salmon.
I liked this recipe because it was very simple. However, I gave it a 3 because I agree with the first reviewer about it being bland. I added garlic, but I think the recipe could be approved on more by adding some spices.
My husband & I found this to be incredibly bland. Garlic or some sort of spice would make a big difference.
This was a very nice, festive looking side dish for my New Years Eve party. The taste was pretty good, but as others commented, could use just a bit of perking up. No complaints from any guests, though.
<p>This recipe works great as a side dish. I used feta cheese instead of Parmesan cheese and I added raisons to give it a little more flavor.</p>
<p>My only real problem with this type of couscous is that I find it can be a little dry. As a result I like to serve it with a main dish that has sauce. I have had comments from some that they would have liked a dressing, perhaps a vinigrette, or something of that nature.</p>
<p>All in all it is a great recipe and the green and red peppers definitely make it a christmas side dish.</p>
This is a good way to dress up couscous! But I had to figure out how much 6 oz. was. So I went with 1 Cup. Then I used only 1 1/2 C. water. 4 Cups would have drowned it. Also took advice of others and added garlic powder and pepper.
Instead of water, I used chicken broth and also added garlic powder as others recommended. Then, this made a pretty good side dish.
Mmm Mmm Good! I loved this. It was quick, easy and tastes great! Also tastes great with chopped tomatoes and mozzarella cheese!
