Spiced Butternut Squash Couscous recipe
photo by:kraft
This was very tasty. I made it without the couscous and used slivered almonds to get a little more of a crunch in each bite.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute
Substitute 1-3/4 cups water for the chicken broth.
How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.
