“This is a healthy, delicious, and easy side dish that takes about 10 minutes to make. I'm borrowing the name from Pasta Primavera which, like this recipe, takes advantage of fresh, seasonal, green produce.”

I liked the combination of veggies and flavors in this dish! Next time I would probably halve the couscous or double the veggies, just because I'm a big fan of the green stuff. Thank you! :)

I loved this recipe - definitely going to be a go-to for the summer. I did sub cilantro for the mint and served with some grilled shrimp - so good!

Loved this dish! We'd give it 10 stars if we could! I only had 1 1/2 cups of couscous, so I cooked a box of Near East brand Quinoa and Brown rice and added that with the hot broth. Also, I didn't cook any of the vegetables, just added them with the boiling broth and let it all sit. Sooooo good. The mint really added a nice touch.
