I made this as a warm pasta dish and it was great. I cooked whole wheat penne, added some of the pasta cooking liquid to the mix, and some Parmesan. Delicious. Great recipe to use as a base. Innovate away!

I thought this was excellent, but like another reader I used orzo instead of couscous, cooking it for about 8 minutes in 2 cups of boiling water, and adding the s/d tomatoes during the last few minutes before draining. My experience with orzo is it can be pretty sticky, so I added a dash of olive oil during cooking and rinsed it with cold water after draining. The flavors of the dish meld really well. I'm looking forward to having it for lunch today!
