“This is a creamy concoction of escarole and beans. It's rich, and it's divine! It's also best served with a warm crusty Italian bread.” - by KristaP
Original recipe yields 4 bowls
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Toss in escarole, turning to coat with oil. Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes, or until tender.
- In a separate skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Stir in garlic. Pour in beans with juices, and simmer until creamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in escarole and parsley; simmer 10 minutes more.

Also, you can make it into a soup by adding chicken stock and easier for those who don't like the thick gooey consistency. This meal satisfies your hunger without a doubt. Please use at least 4 cloves of garlic and sprinkle some granulated garlic as well. You can add very small meatballs with the quart or so of chicken stock and it is like italian wedding soup"

Of course, like spinach, it melted down to next to nothing, but it was enough for a side dish for dinner for the three of us with a smidge left over. I used extra garlic - probably chopped three or four cloves and I left out the parsley. Just because I forgot it. I also added a few gratings of romano cheese and stirred it in. I will definitely make this again."
"I loved this recipe, but my husband and children did not. So I had to give it a four because of this. I thought it was really good. Only thing I'm changing next time is when I get the escarole I'm ..." See moregoing to chop it into smaller pieces and throw out the bottoms and any other white part. The white part had a bitter after taste. I'm going to keep feeding it to the family, make them learn to like it. :o)"
