    Twiggyann's Note:

    This was yummy! I wanted to try something new and decided on this and was glad I did. Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen seldom ever lets me down. I served this over large croutons I made from stale bread I had in the freezer by cutting it into large cubes and toasting/drying it out in the oven.

      Excellent soup! The only change I made was to add some scrambled Italian sausage and left out the tomatoes. Adding the escarole was new to me and a great idea. Will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.
