  1. 1. Place the oil in a large saucepan. Wilt the onion, zucchini, and garlic for 8 to 10 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring until tender. Add broth; cook 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook 1 minute more, stirring.
  2. 2. Add the couscous, basil, and parsley. Stir well, adjust the seasonings and heat through. Serve immediately.
  3. * Note: Israeli couscous has a larger grain than regular couscous, resembling pastine (a kind of small pasta). For this recipe, lightly brown 4 ounces of couscous in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring. Add 2 cups broth, cover the pot, and simmer for 6 to 7 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse to remove starch.
