The recipes of Martha Rose Shulman in the Times are always a pleasure. They're never too complex and always healthy. Granted, modifications can be made to make them less healthy (and more complex). On a recent rainy night, her Garlic Soup was made. Following Shulman's recipe (but doubling it) was very easy, but we wanted something heartier so extra fusilli was added and some shrimp was sauteed with garlic.
Served with a simple kale salad (with cranberries and walnuts), it was a perfect rainy day meal. (As I'm typing, the sun is coming out, but still, it's a great soup!
