This is my variation on a classic Italian soup that traditionally has more escarole and beans than broth. Escarole is one of the easiest greens to prepare since you don’t need to stem it; just slice the whole head across into ribbons before washing.

Love this soup. A real keeper in this family. Very easy and not very prep intensive. Other than the escarole you can have all these ingredients in your pantry or freezer/fridge for a quick go-to meal. Another time saver is to buy the escarole already cleaned and cut. Perfect soup for a busy night.
This has become our "go-to" soup throughout the year! While it's delicious and easy to make as written it's also tasty without meat (and using vegetable stock), with a variety of fresh or frozen greens (kale, spinach, mustard), with bacon, ham or sausage, etc. I typically serve it with a slice of crusty bread & radishes and forgo the croutons. However, it's a perfectly tasty and filling meal in and of itself.
