"This soup is garlicky with the option of Adobo spice which can be found in specialty supermarket. Shred Italian cheese on top if you like." — Rosemarie

sweet onion, chopped

My husband, who is italian, loves this soup! It's super easy and healthy. The only thing I changed is I pinched little sections of Jennie-O turkey italian sausage out of the casing and formed into little meatballs. Browned them in a separate pan and added them to the onions & garlic after sweating them. The meatballs really made it into a meal. It tasted awesome. I also think the adobo spice is a must! This recipe is a keeper!
I didn't have Adobo seasoning so that may be why the flavors just felt flat to me as is (although the recipe says it's optional). It felt like it needed some sort of acid, so I squeezed a half a lemon into the soup, and it turned into a spectacular dish.
I love this soup. I have always made it with cannelini (white) beans & also add a box of frozen cheese pierogi. The kids pick out the parts they like.
The harddest part making this soup was chopping the onions.... This was very good and had a great taste everyone that ate it enjoyed it!
This is a very easy, tasty rendition of an old Italian favorite. I like to add homemade, tiny meatballs to the soup while it is cooking. Yummy!
My mother in-law makes this all the time. I had asked for the recipe several times but was never given it. Then I found this one. It's even better then hers! Great flavor!
Every once in a while I wish there was an option for 10 stars. This is definately one of those times!! This soup is OUTRAGEOUS!! It takes no time to make, is TOTALLY healthy & the taste is OMG!!!
It is hard to find good looking escarole where I live so I just substituted spinach. It was still wonderful and perfect for my husband who is a diabetic. All that fiber and protein, yum. Thanks for sharing.
