Greens and Beans
July 03, 2019

I love greens and beans! This is also a staple in my house. I want to offer an alternate method that only uses one large skillet and no pre-blanching. At my supermarket you can buy bags of cleaned and chopped escarole - I start there. In a large nonstick skillet add 3 TBLSs olive oil, and 5 cloves rough chopped garlic. when the garlic is fragrant add escarole and toss with tongs for 3 minutes or so to cover each piece with with garlic oil. Add I can drained cannelinni, 2-3 cups chicken broth, hot pepper flakes, oregano, and bring to a rapid boil over high heat. Cook to reduce for 10 -15 minutes. Turn off heat and sprinkle liberally with fresh grated parm. cover and let stand for a few minutes. the 'sauce' is cheesy and and great for crusty-bread dipping. we usually have this with spicy grilled chicken sausage. Easy, fast, economical, healthy, and delicious.
