This one-pan dish would also be good with sugar snap peas added at the end.

We have been enjoying this meal for years, since it was published in Everyday Food. Really miss that magazine!

This recipe was so easy! This was the first time I'd made couscous (I've eaten it many times but for some reason never found a reason to make it), used whole wheat couscous, and my whole family loved it. Will definitely make it again.
