Couscous Spinach Casserole
1 cup couscous
1-1/2 cup boiling water (or chicken stock)
1 tsp salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, diced
3 tomatoes, diced
1 tsp basil
1/3 cup pine nuts (or leave them out)
5 cups loosely packed spinach, torn into small pieces
1 cup grated cheese, your choice (Laura says Muenster, I say whatever, or leave it out. I've made it both with and without the cheese and it is good either way.)
Combine couscous, boiling water and salt. Cover for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, saute garlic and onion for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, and cook for 10 minutes more.
Add tomato mixture to couscous. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Put in a 2-1/2 quart baking dish, top with cheese, and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
Note: I think I should probably double this recipe next time. Or at least the couscous.
