Couscous with Pine Nuts

From the cookbook:

Barefoot Contessa At Home

Melt the butter in a large saucepan.  Add the shallots and cook them over medium-low heat for 3 minutes, until translucent.  Add the chicken stock, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil.  Turn off the heat.  Stir in the couscous, cover the pan, and set aside for 10 minutes.  Add the pine nuts, currants, and parsley and fluff with a fork to combine.  Serve hot.
