Israeli Couscous and Cheese

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

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir couscous in the melted butter until slightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until most of the stock is absorbed and the couscous have plumped, 6 to 7 minutes.
  3. Stir heavy cream and pimientos into couscous; add cayenne pepper and cook until couscous is tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add more broth if needed.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in Cheddar cheese until melted; add chives and stir to combine. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste.

It's a nice meal for comfort, easy to see why kids would like it. I would probably do 1 1/2 cups chicken broth next time, it was a little too soupy.

Yummy variation on classic mac and cheese. I didn't have heavy cream, so I substituted a combination of milk and butter. Delicious.

I keep forgetting to pick up fresh chives, but I've been substituting Herbs de Provence instead and that has been tasty. The first time I made this I used Italian seasoning and it was just so-so...

This was nice change instead of the regular macaroni and cheese!! Great recipe. I did leave out the pimientos because I don't like them.

Easy way to make a quick mac and cheese like dish. Did not add pimento as I did not have it on hand. Kids liked it.

Super fast and easy to make. I didn't have the pearl couscous only traditional and it still came out yummy. I'll be keeping this recipe around!

Honestly I didnt like the flavors of this recipe. Sorry.
