Easy-Peasy Soups

Anything you can prep in advance helps on the big day. Even if a dish can't be completed, you can at least make certain components in advance.

Such is the case with this autumn-inspired White Bean and Pumpkin Bisque with Sage Pesto.

Start with canned pumpkin (for rich, smooth flavor) and canned white beans (for body), and you end up with a speedy first course that's crowned with a flavor-packed pesto. Make the soup a few days ahead, but do the pesto only shortly before serving so its color stays vibrant.
