How to Make It

I served this to my bridge group for a special luncheon. The response was overwhelmingly positive. It's so easy to prepare and the results are so worth it.

Gotta love this one, super easy! My tip is: I always drain AND Rise all beans, it helps to remove the salt they pkg everything in cans with. Also only buy reduced sodium tomatoes, just as tasty. I also like using the vegetable pastas, adds more color and flavor to all recipes. They come in lots of shapes now! I added 2 cans of rinsed and drained beans, because we love them and rarely can find ways to use them up*!* ENJOY**

I love this recipe! I make it for family and friends who are feeling under the weather because it is so healthy and as much a comfort food as chicken noodle soup. It is hard to find escarole in the south so I substitute fresh chopped baby spinach.
