Fregola is an Italian rolled pasta similar to Israeli couscous, and it's wonderfully toothsome in this salad. If you can't find fregola (or wanted to go gluten free), millet would be a great substitute. Top with a few chunks of good quality tuna packed in olive oil and you've got a nice, hearty, nourishing meal.

I was lucky enough to nab a leg of organic, sustainably-raised lamb from Montana's Willow Spring Ranch at Shelton's Market for this and was rewarded with succulent, juicy meat spiked through with spice. To find a source for grass-fed lamb (and other meats) near you for your Easter meal, check out Eat Wild. Serve this with quinoa, mixed greens, sliced black olives, thick slices of orange, thinly sliced fennel and red onion tossed with the dressing from this salad here.

Not only is this soup easy and flavorful and light and hearty all at the same time ... it's even better made the day before and reheated.

I can't tell you how much I love this salad. Butter lettuce has a delicate, sweet crunch to it, and its crevices catch the nubbins in the vinaigrette perfectly. It's crazy simple, and it's the perfect accompaniment to Frittatas, Soft Scrambled Eggs, Simplest Roast Chicken, Crispy Curry Quinoa Cakes ... you name it.

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.
