This is a great pasta dish. The hardest part of the whole recipe is cutting the escarole. It is fast, simple, and delicious! What more could you ask for? With a loaf of Italian bread it goes a long way. Enjoy!

This recipe is really good. I made some slight adjustments so suit my family. Added 1 small onion and 2 cloves of garlic (sauteed like advised by prior reviewer) also added a few shakes of crushed red pepper and topped with fresh grated romano cheese. Very good and REALLY, REALLY easy to make!! Thanks for a great recipe!!

We're trying to do a meatless dish one night a week, and this really fit the bill (literally -super cheap to make!) Simple to prepare, and it tasted wonderful. Bought a 0.5lb head of escarole, and it was just right. Like the previous reviewers, I sauteed 1t of extra garlic in 1T olive oil before adding the rest of the ingredients, then a shake of red pepper flakes at the end. My husband like his with grated parm on it, but I thought it was delicious, as is. Creamy, hearty and satisfying.

Excellent recipe!! I wasn't sure if the brand of diced tomatoes would have enough flavor, so I did saute 1 clove of minced garlic with olive oil prior to adding the escarole. Came out perfect! Will definitely be a keeper, thank you!
