Heat a large sautee pan and the olive oil. Sautee onions and mushrooms for 3-5 minutes. When slightly soft, add zucchini and sautee 1-2 minutes more. Add pepper, pine nuts and season with salt, pepper and oregano. Sautee 1-2 minutes. Clear the center of the pan and add the cubed lamb, seasoning with salt and pepper. Toss the asparagus on top and stir until tender, 1-3 more minutes. Juice 1-2 lemons into the pan, according to taste. Snip 2-3 T fresh parsley into the mix, or use 2 t dried.
When couscous is done, pour into pan and mix together. Serve topped with crumbled feta.
