This is another great Italian dish that I learned to make from the late-great Mary Cauterucci. She raised 11 children, cooked like an Italian restaurant chef every night of the week and just about everything she did she did well. I was fortunate to have been in her kitchen as often as I was.
Escarole and beans is one of 3 delicious dishes I make when I (or my family or friends) am not feeling well, or when I feel like I could be getting sick and I want to catch it before it happens. The number 1 dish is Sopa de Milagros (Spainsh garlic soup of Miracles), then the next 2 are tied for 2nd place: Pasta e Fagioli and Escarole and Beans. All 3 are delicious and all 3 work.
