  1. Put the couscous in a medium heat-proof bowl. Cover with boiling water. Cover with a lid and let sit for 8 minutes.
  2. While the couscous is steaming, heat the butter in a small sauté pan; sauté scallions and parsley for 2 minutes. Turn heat off, and add salt and pepper. Stir together.
  3. With a fork, stir couscous. When couscous is tender, add the scallion mixture. Mix well.

This was a simple side dish for our grilled meal. The scallions add fresh flavor to the couscous. I used a tri-color couscous and may rework the ratio of water to pasta in the future.

First time I've ever had couscous and I quite enjoyed it. I also added some dice red peppers and shallots and green onions. The technique for cooking was great. Thanks
