Very fast, easy, cheap, and delicious. Really, those are my only four requirements of a recipe. Is that so much to ask? originally from The suggested whole wheat couscous, and I used it since I've got it, but regular couscous could easily be subbed. For wont of lemon zest, I cooked my peas in a little bit of lemon juice. 1/2 cup of cheese is a lot, IMO.
