Cous Cous Stuffed Zucchini

> Anybody got any good cous cous recipes?

You betcha!  I made this recently and can't
wait to make it again:

(Serves 4)

Serve this as a side dish.

4 medium (12-inch) zucchini
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 cup cooked couscous
1 cup crushed tomatoes
Pinch dried basil leaves
1 Tablespoon fresh-minced parsley
Salt or salt substitute and freshly-cracked pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Simmer whole zucchini in salted water until soft for about 10 minutes. Remove squash from water, slice lengthwise, and scrape pulp into mixing bowl. In a skillet, sauté onions and garlic in oil until clear. Combine all ingredients, refill squash shells with mixture, and set on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until piping hot.
