- Add escarole and sauté until wilted, about 2 minutes then add wine and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add tomatoes, beans, stock, and cooked sausage and simmer for 10 minutes to blend flavors. Season to taste with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Plate in shallow bowl and top with plenty of grated Parmesan cheese.
