I don't think I have ever made this the same way twice. I have no Italian blood (that I am aware of) so this is not by any means an authentic recipe. Traditionally panecotte is escarole, white beans, pancetta, bread and cheese. Today's version has some hot Italian sausage, fresselles (store bought) and I added a few other veggies for added flavor. Note: escarole is very sandy, I chop it into 2" pieces and soak in cold water. Drain and repeat until the water at the bottom of the bowl is clean.
1 onion diced
2 small carrots diced
2 celery stalks diced
4 cloves garlic chopped
2 links Italian sausage, casing removed
Crushed red pepper
Salt and pepper
1 big can of white beans
Splash of dry white wine
1/4 cup Grated cheese
2 ounces Mozzarella sliced or shredded
Half bag of fresselles
When they are done pour a splash of dry white wine to deglaze the pan.
Next, add the sausage back in (omitting any grease that drained from it), and it's time to cook the escarole. I put it in wet because I feel it aids in the process, but be careful of splattering. Season with salt and both peppers and toss into mixture until it is completely wilted.
