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.
1 14-ounce can  reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
1/4 cup  water
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup  whole-wheat couscous
1 1/2 cups  frozen peas
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon  freshly grated lemon zest
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup  freshly grated parmesan cheese

This is the easist thing I have made in a long time. I used dry dill and threw that and the frozen peas in with the water, broth & oil and brought it to a boil. It went great with pork chops and asparagus!
