1lb. Pinwheel Broccoli Florets (thawed under running water or in the microwave and patted dry)

1 10 oz pouch or can of Ready-to-Eat Chickpeas

2 tablespoons Tragano Greek Organics Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 cup Agrozimi Handmade Pearl Couscous

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 jar Walnut & Sage Pesto

Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)

Prepare sage walnut couscous

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the broccoli and chickpeas side-by-side on a large-rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until the broccoli is tender and lightly browned and the chickpeas are crisped up, tossing once, about 20 minutes total.

While the broccoli & chickpeas are roasting, cook the couscous according to package instructions.

Toss the couscous with the broccoli, chickpeas, and red pepper flakes, if using. Stir in half the jar of the pesto. Taste and season with more pesto, salt, and/or pepper if necessary. Top with desired quantity of cheese. Enjoy!
