My mother Carmela was a wonderful cook and we were blessed to have her for 82 years. This is one of my favorite recipes she made that I enjoyed the most. I do make it, and it is very delicious, but it's just not like mama's! Missing you my dear mother, RIP.

  • 2Add the escarole to the boiling water and cook for about 10 minutes or till tender. Throw in a few small whole garlic cloves the last few minutes. Drain the escarole really well and set aside.
  • 3In the same pot add olive oil. Slice 3-4 large cloves garlic the long way, not too thin and sautee and brown the garlic on each side in the olive oil.
