"DELICIOUS! I made this many years ago, received from a friend on a recipe card that got lost. SOOOO happy to have found the exact recipe here - I reserve my 5 stars for only the best and this is a no-fail hit! We often make it as a side dish for dinner parties. It is definitely best to use broth rather than water for cooking the couscous."- mjchell

Baked Couscous with Spinach and Pine Nuts Preparation
Combine couscous, boiling liquid, and salt in a large bowl and cover with a plate. Let sit for 5 min. then fluff with fork. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and saute garlic and onion 10 mins. or until tender. Add drained tomatoes and cook 10 mins. more, stirring frequently. Stir tomato mixture into couscous and mix in reserved tomato juice, basil, pine nuts, spinach, and pepper. Spread half the couscous mixture into a 12x7x2 in. or other shallow (2.5 qt) baking pan. Sprinkle on cheese, then top with remaining couscous. Cover with foil and bake at 375 F for 25 min. or until hot and bubbly. NOTES : this could easily be made with less oil (just enough to keep onions from sticking), little or not salt (Id prefer soy sauce anyway for flavor), and the cheese could be left out for a vegan or pareve meal.
