  2. Pick over the raspberries, discarding any that are overripe. Shred the basil leaves.
  3. Transfer the couscous to a large serving bowl and stir well to break up any lumps. Add the cheese, zucchini, scallions, raspberries, and pine nuts. Stir in the basil and lemon rind and gently toss all the ingredients together.
