This will be more of a Mary's lunch. Steve told me he doesn't like Couscous. And I'm not sure we can still be friends because it's one of my all time favorite foods. It's super easy and fast. You can dress it up a thousand different ways. After all, it's just pasta but little itty bitty bits of it. Here is one of my favorite ways.

1 1/4 c couscous in a bowl
1 1/2 c boiling water or broth
two handfuls of cherry tomatoes
1/2 package frozen spinach thawed and drained
1/2 container feta cheese (small container)

Place tomatoes on a pan and drizzle with olive oil and salt. Roast at 400 for 30 minutes. Thaw spinach in the microwave and wring out in a kitchen towel. Bring Broth or water to a boil. Pour on top of couscous, cover the bowl and let it rest for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes remove cover and fluff couscous. Toss with tomatoes, spinach and feta.

*I ate this hot and cold. Steve took one bite and made a gross face. The next day I finished it off. maybe I'm not too upset he doesn't like it, I did get to eat the entire thing myself :)

I am definitely going to try this-I love couscous. Seriously Steve, you need to refine your palette.
