Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is delicious! I used pearled couscous because that's what I keep in my pantry. I usually make a Mediterranean couscous with light curry spice, but I was having some company that doesn't like curry. I made this instead and they loved it! They had never had couscous before because it always came with curry.

We're so glad you and your company enjoyed it!
