"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."

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.

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.

My husband & I found this to be incredibly bland. Garlic or some sort of spice would make a big difference.
