Israeli Couscous With Pine Nuts and Fresh Parsley
33 mins (prep 15, cooking 18)
13 ingredients
6 servings
Usually I purchase Israeli couscous in bulk, but a few weeks back I bought a box of it at Trader Joes partly because this recipe was printed on the back of the box. The original recipe indicates that the raisins are optional. You can skip them altogether if you wish (personally I wouldn't).
