Jazzed Up Couscous

Nicole

"Super easy, super quick, and inexpensive, but it tastes like a million bucks! Couscous and tomatoes are combined with garlic, onions, and jack cheese! This dish smothers your tongue with flavor. Even my 13 month old loves it!"

  1. Stir together couscous and boiling water in a large, heatproof bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions and garlic, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the diced Roma tomatoes, and cook until the tomatoes release their juice and the mixture begins to thicken.
  3. Fluff the couscous with a fork, then fold in the tomato mixture and cheese. Serve immediately as the cheese is melting.

THis was okay. I did everything as recipe stated but was just kinda bland for me. Maybe more garlic and salt...It's missing something. I'll have to experiment next time.

I did not care for this.
