Vegetarian CousCous
This easy to make recipe can be tailored to the flavours you love.

San Remo has some fantastic products and recently I found out their brand is not just limited to pasta. By following the instructions on the San Remo couscous packet I was able to make beautiful fluffy couscous. I then added the flavours I love to the couscous to create this vegetarian dish that is not only family friendly but can be served for lunch or dinner.
