  • Meanwhile, toast pastina in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, until golden, about 4 minutes. Add to simmering broth. Slice sausage; add to saucepan with accumulated juices. Cook, stirring, until pastina is al dente and sausage is cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Drizzle escarole with vinegar; season with salt and pepper and divide evenly among bowls. Ladle soup over it; top with shaved cheese, fennel fronds, and pepper.
