Escarole and Beans

1 c Chicken broth
1 lg Head escarole; well washed and coarsely cut
2 tb Olive oil
2 Garlic cloves; minced
15 oz Can cannelloni beans
4 Fresh basil leaves; cut up


In a large saucepan place chicken broth and escarole, bring to a boil and simmer for an hour. Gently brown the garlic in the oil, then add cannelloni beans with their liquid and heat thoroughly. Combine with escarole and let simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. Stir carefully with wooden spoon. This should have a soupy consistency (add a little more broth, or water, if necessary). This is excellent with hot pepper flakes, grated cheese, and hot Italian bread.
