I use the Ainsley Harriott flavoured couscous sachets – it’s really worth keeping a few of these in the cupboard as you can use them to turn a few leftovers into a dinner really easily. 

I love this as an easy autumn-y dinner with a glass of red wine, if I’m feeling extra lazy I buy the bags or ready chopped and peeled butternut squash.
