    to clarify the directions...I pinch the sauages to form "small meatballs" and dropp them in the oil, cook till no longer pink... I also add some sort of small pasta. either tublini whatever is in the cabinet. I have made this a TON of times, its a quicker way to make escarole soup the "cheater" version...LOL hope you enjoy as my family did.... :o)  -  25 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I omitted the tomato sauce, and added a couple of cloves of garlic to the sausage and it was so delicious - my friend and her 2 year old daughter both loved it as well. Make sure you note Melanie's added instructions to pinch the sausage into small meatballs and fry in oil, also add a small pasta (I used tubettini) towards the end of cooking.  -  05 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    YUMM!!! This soup is delicious! The whole family loved it (me, hubby and a 1yr old). The only thing we did differently from the directions: The store was out of Cannellini beans (white kidney), so I got pale red kidney beans instead.  -  04 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
