For some reason I’ve been craving sun dried tomatoes and kale pasta. Instead of serving the husband the same thing over and over again, I thought I’d mix it up a little.
Sundried tomatoes are the perfect thing to add to any pasta dish because they make it taste like it was a lot of work. Shhh nobody has to know!
I’d gotten it in my head that I was going to make sundried tomato orzo, but at the last minute switched it up to Israeli couscous instead. This makes the entire dish a total discrepancy, as I normally hate both tomatoes and couscous. But make them sundried and make it Israeli, and I love it.
Israeli couscous is really just tiny balls of pasta. Very similar to how orzo is just rice-shaped pasta.
So if you want a super easy dish that tastes like you worked really hard on it, give this a try. Just don’t tell anyone my secret- that it’s super quick and easy.
I made a rookie, rookie mistake. I forgot I was cooking pasta instead of a grain. Aka it didn’t magically expand and double. Therefore, we were hungry diners. Thank goodness for garlic bread, peaches, and ice cream.
I’d suggest this serving size as a side dish for 2 people. Otherwise, at least double the recipe.
Delicious though, if I do say so myself.
