Whole-Wheat Couscous with Parmesan & Peas

Couscous, which is actually a type of tiny pasta, makes an almost-instant side dish. Happily, the whole-wheat variety is just as fast to prepare as regular couscous. Lemon zest is a delicious accent to nutty Parmesan in this Italian-inspired couscous.

Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce c reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
