Whole-Wheat Couscous with Parmesan & Peas

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/whole_wheat_couscous_with_parmesan_peas.html

From EatingWell:  December 2005/January 2006

Couscous, which is actually a type of tiny pasta, makes an almost-instant side dish. Happily, the whole-wheat variety is just as fast to prepare as regular couscous. Lemon zest is a delicious accent to nutty Parmesan in this Italian-inspired couscous.

6 servings, 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Preparation

  1. Combine broth, water and oil in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in couscous and remove from heat. Cover and let plump for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook peas on the stovetop or in the microwave according to package directions.
  3. Add the peas, dill, lemon zest, salt and pepper to the couscous; mix gently and fluff with a fork. Serve hot, sprinkled with cheese.
