Easy Sausage Dinner

This isn't so much a recipe as a style of putting things together.  It's an idea for one of those evenings you aren't very hungry and don't want to cook, but also don't feel like going out for something.  All the ingredients are things you can have in your pantry or freezer, waiting for a day like this.

It's all in the presentation.  The most boring meal can look inventive with the right plating.  Don't underestimate the effect of a light dusting of herbs or spices.  Only you have to know how bored and tired you were, unless you want to lay on a guilt trip.

1 C Israeli couscous
1 10oz package frozen spinach, thawed
1 package (4) flavored sausages.  Mine were spinach & feta chicken sausage

1.  Bring 1-1/2 C water to a boil and stir in couscous and spinach.  Add seasonings like salt, pepper, or garlic powder if desired.  Lower heat to a simmer and cook while working on sausage.

2.  Cook sausages according to package directions.  When done, spoon couscous mixture onto plates or bowls.  Top with a sausage.  If you have it, garnish with parsley, green onions, or something else that looks good.  Serve hot.
