Spinach (my preference) can be used in place of escarole. This is a quick recipe from Health Magazine.

We've enjoyed this twice now. I made a couple of small changes; I used tomatoes with chopped green chilis and left out the red pepper flakes. I also sauteed onion, mushrooms and garlic in olive oil before adding the other ingredients. I used frozen spinach, as that is what I had on hand. I didn't bother to thaw or drain it, since there is water added anyway. This is really tasty and filling. I also think it would make a terrific soup, with the addition of a little more fluid, some white wine, and some shell pasta in place of the ravioli. I will be trying that when it gets to be soup season.
