Expert Tips

Serve with a crisp romaine salad tossed with ripe olives and Italian dressing.

Shave fresh Parmesan cheese over the couscous, instead of sprinkling with grated cheese, and garnish with fresh, whole oregano leaves.

Couscous is a granular form of pasta, but it is often used like a grain such as rice. Couscous cooks in 5 minutes—perfect for meals when you are pressed for time.
