Wash the greens well in cold running water. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add the greens and cook until tender (do not overcook). When draining greens leave a little water for juice and moisture. In a small pan, add olive oil and sliced garlic. Fry for a few minutes until garlic is lightly browned. Put aside. (Cook's Note: You can leave the garlic in the oil or remove it leaving just the flavored oil). In another small pan, cook the cut up pieces of pepperoni in 2 tablespoons of water. Let boil for 2 minutes; remove the pepperoni; add to the garlic and olive oil mixture.In a larger pan, mix together greens, olive oil and pepperoni. Let it come to a slow boil then add the beans gently stir and heat until beans are heated through. Enjoy with or on top of Italian bread. Serves 4 - 6
