    Lorac's Note:

    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.

      I wasn't too pleased with the texture of the escarole after blanching. Even only blanching for two minutes and plunging in cold water to stop the cooking, it was too soggy. Next time I would skip the blanching, even though it did eliminate the bitterness.

      This is a really good recipe. I added the juice of 1/2 a lemon during step #4. I've also done it without the lemon... both ways are delicious. Thanks!
