    Classic recipe

    Parmesan and Rosemary Couscous with Seared Flank Steak and Greens

    Couscous is an incredibly easy and delicious meal maker to keep on hand. The little pasta grains pick up flavors and stay moist and chewy. This dish pairs our Couscous with herbs and cheese which is a great side for juicy flank steak and crisp grilled greens.
