Method

In a soup pot, heat 1/4 cup of the oil over medium high heat, then add the carrots, celery, onion and garlic and cook until onions become translucent, about 7 minutes.

Add sausage.

When it starts to brown, add mushrooms and continue to cook, stirring occasionally.

When mushrooms have released most of their liquid, add tomatoes, wine, broths, red chile flakes (if using) and farro.

Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until farro is almost tender, about 45.

Add escarole, salt and pepper.

Simmer for approximately 3 minutes, until the escarole has wilted, then stir in thyme.

Serve soup hot, with a drizzle of olive oil and a bit of cheese sprinkled over the top.
