Substitute for Escarole

I found a recipe for Italian wedding soup that I like, but I don't think I would like the escarole because I understand it has a slight bitter taste. I was wondering if I could use baby spinach instead.

Use full grown (regular) spinach.

I've used spinach, swiss chard, and even kale (not all in the same batch) when making It. Wedding soup (one of my all-time favorites)! I haven't made it for awhile...hmmm...I'll have to check my other ingredients to see if I'm missing anything.
