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
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.
