Scarola e Fagioli

Scarola e Fagioli (Escarole and Beans) was what I wanted for my birthday dinner.

Yes, today is my birthday. And today is Ash Wednesday which meant we could not eat meat. Not a problem, for me anyway! I saw the recipe for Chicory and Beans on Memorie di Angelina site the other day. I knew that it was what I wanted to have for dinner on my birthday. We also had some of the Foccaccia bread that I made on Sunday and a very nice bottle of Montepulciano D’Abruzzo. This dinner reminded me of something my mom would have made. It was simple and delicious. I could not find Chicory so I used Escarole. The escarole was a good substitute. 

Happy Birthday to me!
