  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the sausage, leaving the drippings in the pot. Set sausage aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add onion to the pot, and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chopped prosciutto and sauté 1 minute. Add garlic and hot crushed peppers.
  • 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 salt and cracked black pepper. Serve  in shallow bowls and top with a generous amount of grated parmesan cheese.
