Ham & Spinach Couscous

Spring has sprung!  Out dinner plates tonight showed it : ) I love this time of year - everything looks and tastes fresh.  We've never tried couscous.  Beyond the ridiculous name, it's not that bad.  Heads up - it's a lot more filling than it looks : )

½ c water
¼ t garlic salt
¾ c diced lean ham
2 c chopped fresh spinach
¾ c uncooked couscous
¼ c shredded cheddar cheese

In a medium saucepan, combine water, garlic salt, ham and spinach; bring to a boil. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover & let stand 5–10 min or until water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and sprinkle with cheese.

We served with cooked carrots with dill, steamed asparagus and fresh strawberries.  We'll be doing this one again for sure.  It took a total of 15 minutes from start to finish to get it on the table.
