    NurseJaney's Note:

    From a saved page of an old Gourmet Magazine. I prefer to use Israeli couscous, the pearl type, however you need to check package directions for additional cooking time. This was a great side dish for "Marinated Lamb Chops" Marinated Lamb Chops. I also used kalamata olives and skipped the salt.

      This made for a perfectly fluffy and pretty tasty couscous. We eat a lot of couscous and although like I said, it was fluffy and tasty, it just didn't make me personally go WOW!

      Love this dish, and especially appreciate the fact it is ready in just a few minutes. I made it as written, but can imagine adding more lemon zest and perhaps a tablespoon of butter (bad Peggy). Served as a side to pan-fried fish and salad. Will make this often.
