Ingredients

1 cup dried cannellini beans
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 stalks celery , cut into 1" pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped pancetta , optional
3 cloves garlic , chopped
3 cups washed and stemmed arugula
1 pound medium-sized shrimp , peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon olive oil

Cooking Instructions

1. Soak the cannellini beans in water overnight in the refrigerator.

2. Drain the beans, put them in a pot and add the chicken stock, carrots, celery and enough water to cover the beans by an inch or so.

3. Bring to a simmer, uncovered over medium-high heat. Do not boil. Skim the foam that comes to the surface. (Do not add salt because it will prevent the beans from becoming tender.)

4. Cook until the beans are tender (about 1 hour) and remove from heat. Drain and discard the carrots and celery. Set beans aside. (The cannellini beans can be cooked ahead of time, covered and refrigerated up to 3 days.)

5. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more.

6. Add the beans, season with salt and pepper, and heat thoroughly.

7. Turn off the heat and gently fold in the arugula leaves. Serve warm or at room temperature. (The white bean salad can be made in advance, covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.)

8. Preheat the grill.

9. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and drizzle them with olive oil. Grill the shrimp for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until they are just cooked through.

10. Serve the shrimp warm or at room temperature on top of the white bean salad.
