This is an easy, light, and creamy pureed soup that will impress your family and friends. Ideally you’d be roasting your own peppers for this, but you can always choose the jarred kind to keep it simple and save some time on a Tuesday. This soup can easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth for the chicken broth.

3 tbsp Tuscan Herb Olive Oil

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 (10-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes

2 (12-ounce) jars...

1 ripe tomato, cut into small cubes

1/2 cup Swiss cheese, cut in julienne strips

This quick, restaurant-worthy salmon recipe looks and feels date-night special but couldn’t be easier. Look for the narrow, slightly thicker fillets—these fare best under the broiler. Serve on top of arugula or mixed greens as a salad or with a side of sautéed or roasted vegetables, or roasted small potatoes and a simple salad.

2 (6-oz.) salmon fillets, skinned (about 1 1/2-in. thick)

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
