It's getting cooler outside these days so what's better than soup....nothing. Right? Here is a modification of the traditional escarole soup that was my mother-in-law's recipe. I hope you enjoy it. She used mini meatballs that she would make herself. So, to make this a quick weeknight meal for a family of four, I changed it to precooked ham and added cannellini beans. Canned beans are great to add to any meal. It makes the meal more balanced and I always feel full for a while afterwards. I hope you like it.
Warm Ham and Escarole Soup

Add the escarole and stir in. Cook until the escarole is cooked.
