Escarole soup

We got a nice cold front last evening and all I could think about was a nice pot of soup. This is the easiest soup to make and it is delicious. First saute some onions in some olive oil, add plenty of garlic and saute.
Wash and coarsely chop a nice head of escarole. Its in the produce by the full heads of romaine and leaf lettuce. Add it to the pot and stir and let it wilt.

Add a box of chicken stock and a can of cannelli beans, juice and all. Don't forget salt and pepper and red chili flakes, this just adds a touch of heat which is so nice. You can add pasta if you like but it is plenty hearty.

Let it simmer about 45 minutes, check for seasoning, Enjoy with crusty bread, piping hot.
