I had marinated peppers and eggplant leftover from last night's sandwich, so I tossed them with drained and rinsed white beans (I use organic haricots), a few kalamata olives, and a clove of crushed garlic. I even warmed it briefly in the microwave, just to take the chill off it on this cold, cold day.
Other additions, depending on your mood and what's on hand:
- torn fresh basil leaves
- prosciutto or Italian salami, or those fat little slices of real Italian pepperoni
- freshly grated parm
- a few sun-dried tomatoes
Oh, the possibilities!
