Recipe by Chef John
"Since Israeli couscous is nothing more than tiny balls of lightly toasted pasta dough, it works well in this macaroni-n-cheese style dish."

pearl (Israeli) couscous
cayenne pepper, or more to taste
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
chopped fresh chives
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
This was a nice change of pace! Creamy and delish...would be great with a grilled steak. I added fresh diced tomato (instead of pimento) and parsley at the end too. Was a hit with the kids also!
I made a few small changes... I didn't include the pimientos because I didn't have them, and I added smoked paprika because I love it. I thought this dish was creamy and warm and perfect for a cold night. My family agrees.
