Dinner for Two: Grilled Garlic Bread with White Bean Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi. Old School! It will always be a stalwart standby mountained on top of linguine, but I like this more elegant, updated version. Grill some thick country bread drizzled with olive oil until it's charred (use an oven if you don't have a grill), and rub the hot bread with garlic. Then top it with a 5-minute stew of big, juicy shrimp, creamy, hearty white cannellini beans, white wine, tons more garlic, parsley, cold sweet butter, and even some arugula if you're feeling adventurous. Perfect for two.
