Directions:

Clean and wash your Escarole well under cool running water.    Making sure  all leaves are cleaned from any dirt or sand.  If you have some time you can even soak the head upside down in a cold water pot, lifting up then rinsing.   You would be surprised how much dirt is lifted during this process.   I brake the the Escarole by hand and place into a colander and set aside. Start  to sauté  your garlic till fragrant.  Add Escarole it should only be rinsed off not dry .   Cook down turning  while cooking on medium heat .  Add chicken base or  chicken stock , cook for 15 minutes. Add you’re Cannellini Beans and cook another 5 minutes just enough to heat up the Cannellini Beans.   Sprinkle with a good parmesan cheese , and serve up with a good crusty bread.  ***  If you are making your dish with any of the above meats mentioned  saute’ in olive oil first till golden  brown, then proceed with the next steps listed in this recipe .
