  • In a small bowl, combine the reserved roasted bell pepper liquid, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and black pepper; stir well with a whisk. Set the vinaigrette aside.

  • Preheat a grill to medium-high. Grill the zucchini slices until tender (about 2 minutes per side); transfer to platter with the farro.

  • Arrange butter beans and roasted bell peppers over farro; drizzle with vinaigrette.

  • Sprinkle the farro and vegetables with sliced fennel and fronds and Parmesan cheese; drizzle with more vinaigrette as desired. Serve at room temperature.
