What to cook w/ Israeli Couscous
This is my first post, so please be gentle :)
I stumbled upon this recipe: http://bit.ly/buO221 when searching pearl couscous (saw it on Top Chef Masters and was intrigued).
I want to make this but I'm stumped as to what meat would go well with this dish. Any suggestions?
Any thoughts on a side dish? I'm truly stumped!
Thanks so much!

My family loves Israeli couscous, so I serve it a lot, often with a ton of chopped parsley and some toasted pine nuts added in. Love it with chicken of any kind that generates yummy juices to put on the couscous, and whatever vegetable is in season.
Where I live asparagus, swiss chard, and leeks are in season now. But, G. Bush notwithstanding, broccoli is always good, right?
Lamb, pork - all good with that dish.
A cool green salad is all you need to add for a scrumptious meal.
Perhaps a light fruit compote for dessert
Israeli couscous is also great with grilled or roasted fish steaks or fillets, salmon, mahi, haibut or swordfish.
A nice mixed vegetable salad on the side and a light dessert will round out the meal.
