 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  tablespoon    extra virgin olive oil
    1                    garlic clove -- pressed or minced
    1 1/2  cup           chopped onion
    2      cups          sliced mushrooms
    2      cups          grated carrots
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      freshly ground black pepper
      3/4  teaspoons     dried oregano -- crushed
    1      cup           diced plum tomatoes
    3      cups          fat free or lowfat milk
    1      cup           dry couscous
    1      cup           grated fresh parmesan cheese
      1/4  cup           fresh basil leaves -- chopped, optional
 
 In a saucepan, combine the olive oil and garlic and cook over medium
 heat until the garlic starts to sizzle. Add the onion, mushrooms,
 carrots, salt, pepper and oregano and continue to cook, stirring
 frequently, until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the tomatoes
 and milk and bring to a boil. Stir in the couscous.
 
 Remove from the heat and cover tightly. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
 Uncover and stir in the Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately. Top each
 serving with a tablespoon of chopped basil, if desired.
