Speedy Greek Couscous

Couscous is a quick-cooking pasta that readily absorbs the liquid in which it’s cooked. Therefore using a flavorful cooking liquid is important. Adding other yummy ingredients doesn't hurt either! I used a tomato-basil couscous, but regular couscous will work just as well.
  • 3 c. chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 c. couscous
  • 1 small zucchini, diced
  • 1/4 c. diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 oz. grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the couscous and remove the pan from the heat. Cover and allow to sit.

Meanwhile, sauté the vegetables in a small skillet sprayed with cooking spray until they are crisp-tender. Add the cooked vegetables, cheese and seasonings to the couscous and mix to combine. Add a little more chicken broth if the mixture appears too dry. Serve immediately.
