1 1/2 c chicken stock
2 tsp butter
1 tsp saffron threads
1 c couscous
1 bunch of scallions, chopped
1/4 c pine nuts, toasted

In a small pan, combine butter, stock and saffron. Bring to a boil, add couscous, cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork, stir in onions and pine nuts.

This is my take on a recipe I found on Food & Wine. I love using zucchini as pasta! What really makes this dish is the lemon zest and tarragon.

Ingredient:
2 lbs small zucchini, julienned on a mandoline lengthwise
3 TBSP butter
6 scallions, sliced thin
Salt & Pepper
2 TBSP tarragon, chopped
1 TBSP lemon zest
1 TBSP fresh thyme
4 oz pecorino grated

In a large skillet melt butter over med high heat, add zucchini, scallions and salt & pepper. Cook until softened, about 8 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients, stir to combine and serve.
