Parmesan Couscous is both simple and delicious; the perfect weeknight side dish that can be served warm or at room temperature.
We’re trying new foods at our house in an effort to try and eat a little more healthy. This week we tried Parmesan Couscous.
I feel like part of our problem in being unhealthy is we get stuck in a rut of eating the same things all of the time. It’s time we mix it up a little bit! I’m the pickiest eater, you can ask Matt, but he’s always making me try new things. Sometimes I hate it. However, I decided to retry a few things after having Sawyer, because with Grey a few of my taste buds had changed. Or maybe as I grow up, I get a little less picky. Anyways, this time we tried parmesan couscous, Matt and Grey thought it tasted like Mac and cheese. We thought it was really good!

That does sound delicious! We love couscous but I rarely think to do anything to amp up the flavor a bit. Pinned.
parmed couscous. sounds delicious and so easy to make. going to try it tonight as a side dish to baked chicken thighs. also sounds like a good dish to make when grown kids and grandkids come to visit (should that day ever come again!).
Sounds yummy. Visiting from the friendship friday blog hop. laurensparks.net
