Dressed up with two kinds of nuts and a splash of lemon juice, my couscous pasta is on the table in less than half an hour. Sometimes I stir in a little chopped parsley after cooking.—Marie McConnell, Shelbyville, Illinois

"Pretty good. I did not have any pine nuts so had to do without. I used bottled lemon juice, but I'm sure it would have been better with fresh. Served with grilled chicken and roasted mixed veggies. Yum!"
