"Spicy, summery pasta salad made with cucumber, lemon, mint, basil, and jalapeno. This is my interpretation of a spicy tabbouleh dish from 'Pasta & Co.'"

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover and let stand until the couscous absorbs the water entirely, about 10 minutes; fluff with a fork.
