To Die For Couscous

Usually I make couscous from the box. However, I was inspired to make my own couscous concoction after I had some wonderful couscous at a restaurant. My husband and I put our brains together about what made that couscous so good and this is what we came up with! This recipe makes enough for a family of four so you can half the recipe if you want to serve this for two.
1/2 Pound Middle Eastern couscous
1/4 Pound of FRESH sun-dried tomato pesto
***You can find this at Whole Foods where they have the pre-made pestos that you scoop out yourself.
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Empty couscous into the boiling water and cook for about 10 minutes or until al dente.
After draining the water from the couscous, return the couscous to the pan and stir in the sun-dried tomato pesto.
Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy! This couscous is so flavorful and makes the perfect accompaniment to any dinner.
Buying the couscous and the fresh sun-dried tomato pesto costs about $3.50 which is about how much a box of good couscous costs. My version makes a lot more than the box and is also fresh!
