As the warm summer months come to an end and the nights begin to cool, a hearty dinner can be just what the doctor ordered. Fluffy couscous acts as the perfect bed for rich lamb sausages. It will soak up the savory juices and mingle with the fragrant end-of-summer herbs and vegetables. Add a final touch of citrus to conjure the flavors of a true mediterranean feast.

1
Boil a medium pot of salted water. While waiting for the water to boil, peel your onion and garlic and finely dice. Roughly chop the parsley. Cut the squash and tomato into bite-sized pieces. Place all of your ingredients aside in small bowls.
2
Once the water is boiling, stir in the couscous. It will take about 12 minutes to cook. In the meantime, heat a sauté pan to medium heat. Season the bottom of the pan with a little olive oil and add the sausages. Cook them slowly and carefully so as not to burn them.

4
Once you sausages are cooked through, after about 12-15 minutes, remove them from the pan and set aside to rest on a plate. Return the pan to the heat and add the onion and garlic - sauté these for a minute or two. Then, add in the squash and tomato and cook for another couple minutes.
5
Lastly, mix in the couscous and parsley and heat everything through. Cut the lemon in two and squeeze half of it onto the couscous. Reserve the other half for garnish.
