Italian style Mess o’ Greens. This recipe was created by Chef Brian Adornetto © 2014; All Rights Reserved

Serves 4 to 6

1 tablespoons Food Lion olive oil

¼ of an onion, cut into ½ inch dice

½ pound ground mild Italian sausage (without casings), crumbled

2 ½ tablespoons minced fresh garlic

1 ½ pounds any combination of escarole, curly endive, and/or Swiss chard, roughly chopped

½ cup Pinot Grigio


Freshly ground Food Lion black pepper

Grated Pecorino Romano

Into a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, pour the oil. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 6-8 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, stirring and breaking apart the sausage, until browned about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, less than a minute.

Add the greens and wine in batches, if necessary. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally until tender, about 7 to 10 minutes. Lower the heat to medium, season the greens with salt and pepper, cover, and cook, 2 to 3 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with grated cheese. Serve with crusty Italian bread, if desired.
