I am not really an escarole fan. I love greens like kale and I have come to love chard, but for some reason escarole has evaded me. So when my husband bought two big heads of it on sale I had to get creative. I knew that just sauteeing with garlic and oil would not work for me. I am hoping to try a nice soup, maybe something with white beans, but last night I didn't have the time or ingredients for that, so I made this dish that was a surprisingly big hit. Perfect to make ahead, reheat and serve too, so that is an added bonus. You can also add white beans to this dish if desired.

I love soups in the Fall. The weather starts to get colder and all I want is a nice hot bowl of a soup. The best part is that soups can be a great way to get lots of vegetables and eat low calorie. This soup is a one pot meal, you can put rice in the soup or serve it on the side or leave it out. The greens and the chicken meatballs are really hardy enough on their own.
