Delicious! We eat cous cous all the time in our house usually I make it with sauted peppers and onions but it was great to have some new inspiration. I don't think I'd put so much lemon juice in it next time though. I will definately be making this again and again, great for parties and entertaining.

I love couscous and live on it over the summer. I've been thinking of more ways I can use courgettes as my veggie garden is over run with them at present, a great, simple little side dish.

Excellent recipe and so easy to make. I exchanged the parsley for coriander and served it with coriander and chilli salmon, which was delicious. With the leftovers I made a salad with leftover roast chicken and that was great too. The sharpness of the lemon with the tanginess of the feta are a very good combination and make the cous cous flavoursome.

Quick & delicious! I've made it many times with 'whatever the house gives'...Aubergine and red peppers instead of courgettes, coriander instead of parsley etc.

Yum! I left out the feta as I was serving it with a cheesey baked aubergine and it was gorgeous. And I had plenty for the next day too, it's great cold aswell!

Brilliant!! We used peppers instead of courgettes, but it still went down a treat at the BBQ - & there was definately enought to go round!!
