This is a bowl brimming with the fresh clear tastes of Spring.
This Mediterranean-inspired salad is delicious proof of how effortless and quick it can be to pull together an elegant, satisfying, healthy meal. It's just a matter of elevating cupboard staples with a few fresh, flavorful, easy-prep ingredients. Here canned white beans and tuna are upgraded with a bright lemon-oregano dressing, served on a bed of crisp radicchio and lettuce and garnished with fresh parsley leaves. Serve it with some good crusty bread for a meal that is simply stunning. I call for olive oil-packed tuna for its decadently rich taste and texture. Enjoy this salad with some crusty whole-grain bread or Parmesan-Herb Flatbread Crackers.
With "squiggly" noodles and tomato, this is a gem of a kid's pasta. And it has a sneaky side - they will eat beans without even thinking about it.
Creamy beans, salty pancetta, and bright color from the spinach -- a winning combination on the fly!
