“This is such a quick recipe to make and has a wonderful flavour, it is the perfect after work meal as you can have it on the table in about 25-30 Min's. I love couscous and this is another way of preparing it with the sun-dried tomato pesto along with the chopped sun-dried tomatoes, adding such wonderful tastes. I top it with chicken which I also rub with sun-dried tomato pesto and I think it is a wonderful combination.”
