  • 3 (2.6 oz.) Pouches StarKist Tuna Creations® Herb & Garlic
  • 1 cup uncooked whole-wheat couscous
  • 18 tsp. each salt and black pepper
  • 2 cups asparagus cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 34 cup frozen sweet corn kernels
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. light Italian dressing
  • 1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


  • Cook couscous according to package directions, using water only (see package for specific instructions). Transfer to a large bowl or serving platter, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add asparagus and 2 Tbsp. water. Cover and cook for 3 minutes, or until partially softened.
  • Uncover skillet, and raise heat to medium-high. Add corn, and cook and stir until slightly blackened, about 3 more minutes. Add tomatoes, and cook and stir until veggies have softened, about 2 minutes.
  • Transfer veggies to a medium-large bowl. Add tuna and dressing, and mix well. Spoon mixture over the couscous, and sprinkle with Parm... or toss it all together if you like!
