Escarole, Sausage, & White Bean Stew

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Umberle

This is...not healthy, but oh so good. I got this recipe out of the Gourmet Cookbook. I've modified it only slightly. Now that I've made it once, my bf asks for it over and over again :roll: I serve it over whole grain pasta with a salad and a nice white wine.

We enjoyed. An excellent combination of seasonings. Used sweet Italian sausages. Did cut back on the garlic as I only had five cloves. Found the five cloves made for a lovely garlicy flavor. Also added most of the two tablespoons of flat leaf parsley when stirring in the butter leaving just a touch for sprinkling the top. Served in bowls along with crusty rolls. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe Umberle.
