There's no marinara sauce in this recipe - only very basic seasonings and some Parmesan cheese - but gosh, it's good! You can use frozen cauliflower as a time-saver if you like. From Country Living magazine.
As fast as you can heat a can of veggies you can have this special side ready to serve! I hate canned green beans yet this is one veggie my dd will eat without complaint. This forced me to find a way to make us both happy. Hope you enjoy this one!
This recipe appeared in Gourmet about 15 years ago, and I've adapted it slightly. It's just amazing how the cornstarch eliminates the greasiness without diminishing the flavor at all. This is the basic version, but you can definitely jazz it up by adding Italian seasonings, grated Parmesan, etc. I never bother 'sweating' the eggplant when preparing it this way, but you may prefer to.
Escarole is a bitter green and we love it sauteed with fresh garlic. A quick blanching keeps it bright green and tames some of it's bitterness. I found this version in "The North End Italian Cookbook". Fried bread crumbs and a few red pepper flakes makes this dish fantastic.
