Step 1: 1. Place your cous cous in a bowl, cover with boiling water, drizzle over a little cooking oil, cover with cling film and place in the microwave for 2 minutes (make sure that you prick the clinfilm with a knife first to let the steam escape as the cous cous cooks)
Step 2: *tip* you dont have to add oil although it does help to stop the cous cous from sticking together.
Step 3: 2. Remove the cous cous from the microwave when it pings and shake it to seperate it (it will have clumped together)
Step 4: 3. Add the red pesto, chilli flakes and a little salt and pepper (it’s worth remembering that pesto is salty so try not to overdo the salt!)
Step 5: 4. Serve & enjoy!
