This Italian-style side dish will delight lima bean lovers. Not only is it a colorful addition to the menu, the combination of flavors enhance the beans to a delightful taste. The lima beans have a bite yet are tender and perfect with the delicate flavor of the cherry tomatoes.
My grandmother brought this recipe from Italy about 125 years ago. It's been passed through the generations and is now being made by my own great-granddaughters! It's a delightful side dish that we serve with a variety of main courses such as pasta with meatballs or baked chicken. I make it every week!
At the heart of this recipe is plenty of flavor, according to Valree Augustine of Pisgah Forest, North Carolina. "The artichokes, tomatoes and other ingredients blend together so well that I often make a large recipe to take to potlucks I attend," she reports.—Valree Augustine, Pisgah Forest, North Carolina
MY HUSBAND is the gardener in our family, and I love to create new recipes with the produce. This dish is the result of one of my efforts during an especially bountiful zucchini harvest. —Nettie Gornick
Some 30 years ago, the small church I attended held a chicken and noodles fund-raiser supper. I was put in charge of noodles for 200 people! A dear lady shared this recipe and said it had been tried and tested by countless cooks. These noodles are just plain good eating!
