- 1 1/2 cups dried farro
- 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted bell peppers, thinly sliced, 3 tablespoons of liquid reserved
- 2 tablespoons sherry or red wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

- 3 small zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise (about 12 ounces)

- 1 (15-ounce) can butter beans, rinsed, drained

- 5. Arrange butter beans and roasted bell peppers over farro; drizzle with vinaigrette.
- 6. Sprinkle the farro and vegetables with sliced fennel and fronds and Parmesan cheese; drizzle with more vinaigrette as desired. Serve at room temperature.
