What makes this sausage, beans and roasted vegetable soup so delicious? Red bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic are roasted, then blended with a vegetable broth and seasoned with a herb bouquet garni--creating a beautifully rich yet subtle flavor-filled soup base. Sweet Italian sausage and a Vidalia onion add a layer of sweetness and texture along with cannellini beans.
This wonderfully light seafood salad with shrimp, scallop and pineapple can be served as entree or a side salad. The ingredients are charred on a grill pan, laid on a bed of arugula and then highlighted with a pineapple vinaigrette and blue cheese.
