S'Okay Escarole

Bub has been eating a lot of stir fried lettuces since Len told us James enjoys it.  Lettuce is also the one green thing both Derek's will eat.  Hell, even Scooter likes lettuce!

I won't buy iceberg since there's really nothing good for you there.  While browsing the lettuce section on Peapod, I spotted the escarole!  So perfect!  Bub loves lettuce.  He loves beans.  I love making things he will enjoy.

This is so simple and basic but good comfort food.  Pair it with warm bread.

2 large heads of escarole, rinsed and dried
2 - 16 ounce cans of cannelli beans, DO NOT drain
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Garlic

Heat two tablespoons olive oil in very large skillet on medium heat.  Add the escarole.  Cook and turn with tongs until soft, about 10 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

In another skillet or pot, heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium heat.  Add the beans with their can liquids and garlic.

Simmer until thick and creamy, 10 minutes, stirring occassionally.

Add the beans to the escarole.  Toss with tongs to combine.
