"We serve this along with steak and a baked potato. You can drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil on top before serving. Serve with crusty Italian bread. Navy beans work in this, also."

salt, or more to taste

1 (15 ounce) can
cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Parmesan cheese, or to taste
This is a staple in our house. I add a little dry chicken base and unsalted butter to the oil and garlic. Adjust your salt. Make sure you squeeze all the water out of your escarole (very important).I'm a garlic freak so I use a lot more. If you like hot peppers try roasting some Hungarian hots and put on top of greens. Serve with crusty bread.
I found this just ok. I like all the ingredients and there wasn't anything wrong with it, just didn't thrill me. I added a little white wine for extra flavour. I think I will use the leftovers in chicken broth and small pasta for a quick soup.
Liked this very much. Didn't have escarole so I used Kale and cooked longer. Added a little "Better than boillion" non chicken flavor for a little extra taste.
