farro or couscous
cherry tomatoes, quartered
Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
basil, sliced in half lengthwise
Salt and pepper
This was a great summer meal. I sliced the basil up a little more than was stated and added the juice from one fresh lemon. Yum!
This was the deal! I really liked the couscous and I used a marinated filet that was delicious. Yum!
Superb! I added a little lemon juice to the couscous and it was excellent. Will make this dish over and over. I like a little more flavor on my steaks so I marinate in worchestershire then sprinkle both sides with Montreal steak seasoning before grilling. Yum!
I made the salad with couscous and doubled the recipe to accomodate four filets. My husband loved it and it was quick and easy.
Fresh, healthy, light, and especially delicious with a juicy, tender filet. I used a vegetable peeler to shave the parmesan. Don't skimp on the pine nuts or parmesan. The basil could be sliced thinner for better distribution. Mix in a generous squeeze of lemon. Be sure to get a little of every ingredient in each bite! Another plus is this is by Top Chef contestant and all-star, Fabio.
Was very good! This recipe would be good with chicken as well, probably not quite as good, but still good. I didn't put the lemon juice, because I wanted to follow recipe for the first time. Next time I will use lemon juice and 3X the amount of chopped basil. I also just shredded parmesan very fine. So, so good can't wait to make again!
