Couscous Primavera

This is a pretty way to serve couscous.  If you haven’t used it before, you’ll like it, it’s really just very fine pasta, and it cooks QUICK!   Most people won’t even realize you have used whole wheat couscous because it’s so fine; you can certainly substitute regular couscous if you wish.                    
                            Couscous Primavera
  1               Tablespoon  Butter -- or olive oil
     1/4        Cup  Onion -- red if desired, minced
  1               Cup  Green Beans -- cooked and cut

  1               Cup  Cherry Tomatoes -- halved
