Green Bean and White Bean Salad with Tuna

There's much to love about this easy Green Bean Salad … including that you can pull it together almost entirely with what's in your pantry. It holds up well too, making it a nice make-ahead lunch. Tuna is a star ingredient, so pick up a good-quality brand packed in olive oil, which you'll use for the dressing.

Brothy Lentil, Sausage and Farfalle Soup

Take that name to mean anything you please … whether you make this soup out of chicken stock, turkey stock or vegetable stock, you can bet it’ll be scrumptious. What elevates this above a standard chicken (turkey … veggie) noodle soup are the copious amounts of carrots and celery, the beefy lentils, and the fun little topping of sauteed root veggies and sausage. PS – you can make this vegetarian and still have a super hearty soup.
