MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2011

My family and I love this recipe! I have made it many times and it never have left overs. Vary the taste with the type of sausage- kielbasa, chicken sausages (I am presently using a chicken apple sausage which works great). This recipe is simple and easy. I also use canned black beans or red kidney beans (my family prefers them) to the limas. Enjoy.

One of our absolute favorites! I only use half the tomatoes, half the spices and half the lima beans.
