• Wash and dry produce. • Trim and halve zucchini lengthwise; cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick halfmoons. Peel, halve, and finely dice onion. Peel and mince or grate garlic. Pick fronds from dill and finely chop half; reserve remaining for serving. Zest and quarter lemon.


• In a small pot, bring couscous and ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4 servings) to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to low; cook until al dente, 6-8 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to use in Step 5.


• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and softened, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. • Transfer to a plate and set aside.


• Heat a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and sausage*. Cook, breaking up meat into pieces and stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and sausage is cooked through, 6-8 minutes. • Stir in cream sauce, stock concentrates, cream cheese, chopped dill, juice from half the lemon, and ½ cup water (1 cup for 4 servings). Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened, 3-4 minutes more.


• Add couscous and zucchini to pan with sausage mixture. Cook, stirring, until combined, 1-2 minutes. • Turn off heat; stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) until melted and combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper.


• Divide couscous between plates or bowls. Sprinkle with lemon zest and remaining dill. Serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.
