    My family didn't like it. We ended up throwing most away. :-(

    This is a basic, tasty recipe that would be easy to modify to other tastes. I love the added texture that the couscous provides the frittata. It's simple to make because of the limited ingredients. It would be equally easy to substitute other vegetables or add meat. This is a great one-dish dinner or breakfast. Perhaps best of all, my three-year-old niece asked for seconds.

    The next time I make a frittata, I'll definitely be brave enough to change up the ingredients. I made this one according to the recipe, except that one of my two red bell peppers had gone bad. Even using only 1 pepper, I thought there were too many pepper strips in the finished product. I'll spice it up a little next time, perhaps use spaghetti instead of couscous. Maybe I'll try a spaghetti frittata with tomatoes, fresh spinach, pepperoni, and cheese...

    This is a really great standard recipe. It is suitable for a lot of variations. I make this at least once a month on Sundays, and eat leftovers for the early part of the week. I divide it 8 ways when I make it.

    This was a good, healthy breakfast, but I probably wouldn't serve it for special occasions or to guests.

    I wasn't sure about the couscous, but it was a nice addition. Next time I might use a mixture of red and green peppers or add some tomato. Easy to make and easy to make variations.

    I think it was good, but a little too salty. I was able to replace the couscous with rice and next time I think I'll add a little meat like ham to it.

    This was tasty and easy. Never wanting to waste food, I made a few substitutions with leftovers. Instead of couscous, I tore small pieces of stale French bread. I also added 1/2 can of artichoke hearts and cayenne pepper. We served it with simple salad.

    This made a fast, easy, and delicious dinner! I added some sliced squash to the saute and used shredded mozzarella for the top.

    I found the couscous a bit difficult to work with when I mixed it into the skillet, but that may be improved with practice. The flavor was definitely there though. Next time I think I'll use a bit less cheese.

    A new favorite of mine. I had made it for my boys and they weren't big fans, but I loved it. It's great reheated, and I actually even like it cold right out of the fridge. It's a delicious and healthy bite that's easy to prepare and a winner in my book. :)

    Quite good, but next time I will bump up the seasonings a bit. Perhaps some Italian seasoning blend and a pinch of cayenne. Oh, and by the way, I used spaghetti in place of the couscous, and I will do that again. Maybe sometime I'll try diced cooked potatoes in place of the other starch. Quick and tasty dinner. Just added a salad and bread.

    Great! Made it for dinner and my husband and son both loved it. I added some dried basil and used two cups of trader joe's frozen pepper trio. I served it with a spinach salad. Healthy and good, would make it again!

    I Was thinking of making this with Orzo instead of couscous? Any thoughts? 2/2/12- Well, I did make it with the Orzo and it was delicious. My husband loved it as well

    Meh. Cooking Light has MUCH better frittata recipes than this one. I did substitute some sliced mushrooms for some of the red pepper, added some fresh herbs and about 2 slices chopped cooked bacon and it was still just meh. One thing I will give it, it did go together quickly and easily for a weeknight meal.

    Just like grandma used to make (only healthier)! I had a bunch of left over fajita fixins - so i used red peppers and yellow squash. So awesome! I used 2 cups cooked up, so lots of veggies! I added thyme since other indicated lack of "flavor" and the mushroom frittata uses that spice and i love it. I definitely don't eat these things warm, room temp is how i like them, so you can completely skip the cheese, if you aren't eating it hot.

    The couscous gave a nice body to the dish. I added some ham for more flavor. It is a nice weekday meal with salad, but would not serve it to guest.
