Knew I was going to be WAY too hungry by dinnertime, so I used this to curb my hunger a bit. Plus, I was just plain DYING for a bowl! J
So I knew I was in the mood for just a simple pork chop coated in a bread crumb/Parmesan cheese mix and seared into crisp perfection. And I knew we were going to have peas because, well, I never made it to the grocery store yesterday and peas is always our fallbackJ
And I also knew the MAIN STAR of the show was going to be our new side dish for the evening: PESTO COUSCOUS SALAD!!!
Couscous salad is one of our absolute summer favorites, especially Scott. And Scott ALSO loves himself some pesto, like WOAH. So I thought why not combine the 2???
PESTO COUSCOUS SALAD
- 1 cup chicken or veggie broth
- 1 cup couscous
- grated cheese
- Bring broth to boil in a small saucepan. Add couscous, cover pan and remove from heat. Let couscous sit for 5 minutes to absorb broth, fluff with fork and toss in the refrigerator to cool.
- Once the couscous is cool, toss with pesto (store bought or homemade) and add another sprinkle of grated cheese and enough salt & pepper to taste.
So easy and sooooooooooooooooo good! As you can see, I even had to bust out the BIG SPOON for serving! Scott said we may have a new favorite couscous salad on our handsJ
Katie also inhaled her whole little bowl (along with some peas) and apparently found the word 'couscous' to be very funny. I think she believed I was also speaking 'Katie-language' (aka-babbles) because every time I said it, she would respond back with her own words & ramblesJ
