  1. Nicely done, Vincent! Ever try it with a little chicken soup or stock? Another twist is with bacon or pancetta. Just add a fresh loaf of toasted Italian bread, done. Any which way, it's my favorite dish growing up as a kid, still love it today.

  2. My grandmother used to make similar dishes. I never paid much attention to how she cooked it. I'm so glad you posted this. I've already made it a couple of times and last night's came out absolutely delicious. I kept saying to my husband, How can something so simple, taste so good? I make other "peasant dishes" that seem to have made it to mainstream, like they discovered something new. When I was a kid, my friends would make fun of the foods we Italians ate, joke's on them now. I totally got a kick out of, "We're Italians, we don't measure." SO true. 🙂

  3. I'm not sure you used enough garlic….As if your accent didn't give it away, when you showed the bread I knew exactly where you were from! Making escarole and beans today but my crusty style bread will come from Panera since in SC we don't have Italian bakeries. Manja!!
