Confetti Couscous

This is from Weight Watchers, and is only 2 pts. for a 2/3 cup serving. Melissa and I love this recipe!

2 tsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 yellow squash, diced
1 (5.8-ounce) package olive oil and garlic couscous
2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1. Heal oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic. Cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Add peppers and squash; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.

2. Cook couscous according to package directions, using chicken broth instead of water and omitting salt and fat. Stir in vegetable mixture, pine nuts, basil, and black pepper. YIELD: 8 servings (serving size 2/3 cup).
