Lemon Flavored Couscous with Zucchini

Great recipe! With the leftovers (if any!) I use it as a filling for Stuffed summer squash. Try an unusual summer squash like a round Eight ball or a yellow straight neck squash or a two tone (yellow and green squash) called Zephyr. Parboil the summer squash first and then stuff with this recipe. Zap in the microwave if you want it hot or eat it cold.
