Escarole and White Bean Soup

Ok - I got motivation to make this since I had a fairly ok bowl at Cinelli's the other day. So, mine turned out pretty good. I think next time I'll add some pancetta or proscuitto to it.

Olive oil
1 onion chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1/4 lb pancetta or proscuitto (change amount of salt and olive oil if you
2 regular bunches of escarole - they come connected for 1.99 at Target. Cut the white part off b/c it is bitter - you don't want to use it.
1 box of low-sodium, ff chicken broth
2 cans rinsed and drained cannellini beans - , white beans, great northern beans - whichever

Saute the onions in the olive oil. When transluscent, add garlic for a minute or less. Cook the ham with the onions if you add it. Pour in broth and beans. Let cook for about 15 minutes. Then add the escarole and cook for a little bit. Then serve with bread! :)
